February is American Heart Month. Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men an women? Anyone, including children, can develop heart disease. Heart disease occurs when a substance called plaque builds up in your arteries. When this happens, your arteries can narrow over time, reducing blood flow to the heart.
