Eight–time Grammy Award–winning megastar Usher and Buzz the Bee, the iconic Honey Nut Cheerios™ character, are using dance to spread the word that being healthy can be fun and delicious. The two new friends are asking people to celebrate and share healthy and happy moments, like dancing to Usher’s new single “She Came to Give it to You” and enjoying a heart–healthy breakfast with Honey Nut Cheerios. With health issues like heart disease on the rise, Buzz wants to get people buzzing about the importance of physical activity and healthy food choices as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Heart disease affects one in three people in the U.S. or approximately 82.6 million people, according to the American Heart Association; but a few simple lifestyle choices can make a big difference in people’s overall health:
- Lowering blood pressure and cholesterol will reduce risk of dying of heart disease
- Eating a healthy diet that is low in salt, low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables
- Daily physical activity, like dancing or taking a brisk walk
- Quitting smoking; not smoking
