Students receive a crash course in the physiology and functioning of their hearts as well as how to keep their hearts healthy. Animations clarify how the heart works to provide oxygen and nutrients to all the tissues and organs of the body. They also detail what can go wrong. The program stresses that even teenagers can show early signs of atherosclerosis and other heart problems. Two cardiologists and a dietitian then pinpoint the main risk factors for an unhealthy heart, including: smoking, abnormal levels of cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and physical inactivity.
