Heart and Vascular

About

Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death of Americans – accounting for one out of every four deaths in the U.S.

But the truth is, heart disease is avoidable and treatable, and most of its risk factors are lifestyle based, meaning they can be altered with simple changes in diet and exercise.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease, and about half of all Americans (47 percent) have at least one of these three risk factors.

Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices also can put people at a higher risk for heart disease, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Excess weight and obesity
  • Poor diet
  • Physical inactivity
  • Excessive alcohol use
