September 26 is World Heart Day! Your heart has been doing all the lovin' since you had your first crush, but are you giving your old ticker the care it deserves? By Kristine Ching

According to the latest figures of the National Statistical Coordination Board, heart disease is still the number one killer of Filipinos, claiming over 77,000 lives a year. The second is also a cardiovascular disease, stroke, which kills over 50,000 people a year. But the good news is, heart disease and stroke are lifestyle-related ailments, so a few changes in your everyday life can mean a huge decrease in your chances of getting one.

Sunday, September 26, is World Heart Day, and according to the World Heart Federation, what this means is it’s time to take responsibility for the health of your own heart. And the first step to doing that is to be aware of what’s good and bad for your ticker.

Check out the slide show below, where we have listed a dozen super foods that can help keep your cardiovascular system in tip-top shape to get started in your heart-healthy regimen.

Glad of the information but not sure how to incorporate it into your life--or, more specifically, your diet? View our article on heart-healthy recipes to see how you can turn your hand (and your kitchen) toward meals that are good for your heart and your stomach!

    One knows that modern life seems to be high priced, however different people require money for various issues and not every one gets big sums cash. Thus to get fast loans or sba loan will be a right solution.

    Have no a lot of cash to buy some real estate? You not have to worry, because it's possible to get the personal loans to resolve such kind of problems. Thence get a commercial loan to buy all you want.
