Abstract:This article focuses on coronary heart disease. Heart disease or coronary heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, and causes half the deaths in the U.S. today. An estimated 57 million Americans are afflicted with some type of heart disease. Heart disease claims over 720,000 lives each year. Although women believe breast cancer is the big killer, they are 11 times more likely to die from heart disease. The implication of current research is that 80-90% of all heart attacks and strokes are preventable. Eliminating as much as possible those factors, which increase our risk of heart disease, can prevent heart attacks.
