If you’re concerned about your heart, you’re not alone. The incidence rate for heart disease has remained the same for decades with heart disease consistently being the leading cause of death.
From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
● About 610,000 Americans die of heart disease every year–that’s one in every four deaths.
● Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women with over half of the deaths being men.
● Coronary heart disease is most common, killing more than 370,000 people annually or 1,000 daily.
● About 735,000 Americans a year have a heart attack. Of these, 525,000 are first time events and 210,000 occur in people who have had one before.
There’s no question that with a healthy heart your life span and overall quality of life increases. So, it’s important to learn how to avoid heart health issues.
