In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in both men and women. In fact, the disease is responsible for 1 in every 4 deaths. How can we show support for those fighting this epidemic? Companies developing cutting-edge cardiology medicines and devices, and those that promote healthy living and exercise, are allies in this battle. Companies selling dangerous products like junk food, tobacco and alcohol, are part of the problem. OpenInvest has created a heart-healthy investment portfolio, allowing investors to align their assets to fight one of the major diseases of our time.
Based on the American Heart Association’s guidance on healthy living, OpenInvest excludes companies whose products aggravate heart disease, such as tobacco and alcohol companies, but also soda and sugary snack companies, meat processors, and fast food chains. Selecting this cause invests in companies producing cardiology medicines and devices, and companies promoting healthy living through sport and exercise.
