Farmers Have Hearts Action Research

More than eight out of ten Irish farmers who participated in the Farmers Have Hearts Cardiovascular Health Programme made lifestyle changes to improve their heart health and reduced their risk of having cardiovascular disease, a major study has shown.  The programme engaged with more than 868 male drystock and dairy farmers in the South, Southeast and Midlands over a one-year period.  This involved completing a health check at the start and end of this period, and engaging in health-promoting behaviours such as improving diet or getting more physical activity.  Find out more at:
