How the heart works…

OK, under exam conditions, there were some basic facts that I didn’t know about how the heart works.  I’m sure everyone else knows the details, but just in case, the following link provides a brief overview of the following:

  1. The heart and what it does
  2. What is cardiovascular disease? and What are the symptoms?
  3. What are the risk factors? and How can you reduce your risk?

Some of it is a bit Mickey Mouse… but one of the things I’m realising is that there are two steps to doing the right thing  (1) knowing what the right thing to do is, and (2) doing it!
