Cardiovascular Disease—The Leading Cause of Death in the U.S.

 

Your heart is the powerhouse of the body and works around the clock to keep you alive and healthy. Issues with it can cause your entire body to collapse.

According to the CDC, heart disease is the number one cause of death for men and women across social groups. It doesn’t discriminate on a racial, ethnic, or gendered basis, and we lose a person every 37 seconds to this silent but deadly killer. It’s important to address right away, as we work toward a healthier tomorrow.

Cardiovascular diseases are more than just heart attacks; they include anginas, hypertension, forms of hypotension that can lead to syncope, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, heart failure, and strokes. These and other diseases in this category tend to progressively get worse and more fatal.

They result from a combination of factors, including genetic disposition, age, stress, lifestyle choices, and habits, including smoking, diet, and exercise. But sometimes even the youngest, healthiest individuals are affected by these dangerous conditions, making for irreversible damage—or even a loss of life.

Heart disease doesn’t give you a warning, and by the time it’s diagnosed, the damage has been done. From permanent health issues to extreme, irreversible damage and other conditions alongside it, it can have a major impact on your life.
