#StValentinesDay: we support #loveyourheart campaign

For the third year in a row, the MEP Heart Group invites you to raise awareness on cardiovascular diseases (CVD), the n°1 killer in Europe, in view of encouraging the EU to adopt heart healthy legislation and raising cardiovascular health high on the EU policy agenda.
