Discussion Questions: Heart Disease: America's Leading Cause of Death
- Discuss cases of heart disease in your community. Does anyone in your family suffer from it?
- Discuss how easy or hard it is to be physically active in your community. If you were to walk to the store or to a friend’s house, are there sidewalks, traffic lights, and walk signs to enable your journey? Is it easy to get fresh fruits and vegetables where you live?
- What would you change in your environment to make it easier to be healthy?
- Given the lifestyles of most of the adults in your neighborhood or town, what would you predict the rate of heart disease is? Do you think your own behavior and current lifestyle might (or might not) lead to the risk of heart disease later on in your life?
