Every month of the year, in countries around the world, the calendar is filled with health-related commemorative days, including World Cancer Day on February 4, World Multiple Sclerosis Day on May 25 and World Pneumonia Day on November 12. But none is nearer and dearer to our tickers than World Heart Day on September 29.
As the sponsoring organization World Heart Federation explains: "Your heart is at the heart of your health. And it’s easy to give it the care it deserves."
The Federation outlines heart-healthy steps you can take to improve your heart health and your overall well-being. "Our aim (is) to educate people that by controlling risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke could be avoided."

Did you know there is a correlation between hearing loss and heart disease? Could hearing loss be trying to tell you something about your heart’s health? Listen carefully, because a growing body of evidence — based on six decades of research — points to a connection between hearing loss and cardiovascular disease. "The inner ear is so sensitive to blood flow that it is possible any abnormalities in the cardiovascular system could be noted here earlier than in other less sensitive parts of the body," explains David R. Friedland, MD, Ph.D., of the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Dr. Friedland has been studying the hearing-cardiovascular connection for years.
