Avoiding vaping is key to healthy heart
By Julia Wolf
Heart health is important. You only have one heart, after all. That was the message Renee Davis, youth marketing director with the American Heart Association, shared with Cadott students, Dec. 5.
Davis spoke about the dangers of vaping, or e-cigarette use, and other ways students can keep their hearts healthy. Davis says 92.1 million Americans suffer from heart disease.
“That’s a really high number,” said Davis.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and someone has a stroke every 38 seconds. Davis says heart disease is 80 percent preventable.
She started by showing students a video with facts about vaping, with an increasing number of middle and high school students using an e-cigarette.
