The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association Shoots Straight for the Heart
Date:2/3/2009

Dr. Vince Mosesso, the medical director of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association, offers heart healthy Valentine's Day gift ideas

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- February is American Heart Month, symbolized by the celebration of Valentine's Day and a great time to let your loved ones know you care. While many will splurge on jewelry, flowers and other luxuries, why not give a gift to help that special someone stay young and healthy at heart?

"Every two minutes, someone in the U.S. dies of sudden cardiac arrest because of risk factors like a previous heart attack, heart disease, diabetes, smoking or obesity," says Dr. Vince Mosesso, the medical director of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association. "This year, give a Valentine's Day gift both you and your loved one can feel good about."

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the nation's leading cause of death and kills more than 300,000 Americans each year -- more than breast cancer, lung cancer and AIDS combined. Shockingly, during American Heart Month alone, 20,000 Americans will die as a result of SCA, which is often confused with a heart attack. The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association strives to lessen these statistics by offering heart healthy gifts this Valentine's Day. Dr. Mosesso makes the following gift suggestions:

Food and candy:

  • Dark chocolate is high in antioxidants which absorb molecules that contribute to heart disease. Of course, the secret is in moderation -- a little more than a Hershey's Kiss each day is all you need. Also, don't eat that candy with a glass of milk, which counteracts the benefits.
  • Enjoy that morsel of dark chocolate with a glass or red wine which is also high in antioxidants from the grape seeds and skin, which increases the "good" HDL cholesterol and helps prevent blood clotting and plaque formation in arteries
