Myrtle students learn tips for having a healthy heart
Crystal McBrayer, Community and Occupational Health Coordinator for Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County, has traveled to many schools in the city and county this month educating students about the importance of heart health.
On Wednesday, Feb. 23, McBrayer went to Myrtle Attendance Center and talked to third grade students from Jessica Waits’ class and from Mellissa Kitchens’ class.
McBrayer taught the students the location of the heart, how many times it pumps a day, which is 100,000, that the heart pumps blood but also has to have oxygen, is a muscle, and that the human body has veins, arteries, and capillaries that help with blood flow that the heart pumps throughout the body.
Using a cow’s heart and a pig’s heart, McBrayer gave the students a chance to touch the hearts for themselves.
She also shared several tips with the students on how to keep their hearts healthy.
McBrayer told the students that persons should not ever get into the habit of smoking cigarettes, eat healthy by including fruits and vegetables in the dirt and no greasy or fried foods, exercise between 30 and 60 minutes a day, sleep at least 12 hours a day, and don’t add more salt to food.
