Heartbeat


A BIT DIFFERENT NEXT YEAR. EXACTLY WHO FILLS THOSE SEATS DEPENDS ON WHO VOTERS CHOOSE WHEN THEY HIT THE POLLS OCTOBER 12TH. FOR YLEH, I’M HG.” 3 NOW THAT THE LEGISLATIVE SESSION IS OVER, THE FOCUS TURNS TO THE RACE FOR GOVERNOR. YOU’LL DECIDE ON THAT IN OCTOBER. 3 WE BEGIN TONIGHT’S HEARTBEAT REPORT WITH SOME SOBERING STATISTICS. HEART DISEASE IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG AMERICAN MEN. IT’S RESPONSIBLE FOR ONE IN EVERY FOUR DEATHS. AND MEN ACCOUNT FOR CLOSE TO NINETY PERCENT OF SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATHS…WHICH IS WHY GETTING REGULAR CHECK UPS AND TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF IS SO IMPORTANT. 3 SINCE JUNE IS MEN’S HEALTH MONTH, EXPERTS WITH THE CARDIOVASCULAR INSTITUTE OF THE SOUTH, WANT YOU GUYS TO KNOW HOW BEST TO STAY HEART HEALTHY…BEGINNING WITH EXERCISE. DOCTORS RECOMMEND ABOUT 150 MINUTES OF MODERATE EXERCISE PER WEEK…THAT’S THIRTY MINUTES, FIVE DAYS A WEEK. 3 Brisk walking, anymore than what they say is 2.5 miles per hour, riding your bike, things like that…or doing even more exertion, 75 minutes of high intensity activity, more like jogging, running, swimming laps. But in a sense of getting moving, it’s starting somewhere and doing something. SO IF YOU EXCERCISE REGULARLY GUYS, KEEP IT GOING. AND IF YOU DON’T, FIND SOMETHING YOU LIKE, START SLOWLY, AND BUILD UP TO WHERE YOU NEED TO BE…TO GET, NOT JUST YOUR áBODY MOVINGá, BUT YOUR áHEART PUMPINGá THE WAY IT SHOULD. 3
