What is heart disease and why should I be concerned?

Heart disease is a name given to a variety of conditions that affect the performance of the heart. Important examples of heart disease include:
  • angina, in which there is poor blood circulation to the heart,
  • heart attack, in which there is death of part of the heart muscle, and
  • arrhythmia, in which the rate or rhythm of the heart beat is abnormal.
In the US, heart disease kills more people, both men and women, than any other disease. One American adult dies of heart disease every three minutes.

Your heart is the engine that drives your body. It is a powerful muscle that pumps blood to your entire body, providing the oxygen and nutrients that you need to live. The average human heart works at a rate of 100,000 beats a day or an incredible 2,500 million beats over a lifetime of 70 years.

Your heart is designed to last a lifetime, but you have to do your part to help ensure it stays in good working order. There are many steps you can take to help prevent heart disease from developing. For information on how you can increase your chances of having and maintaining a healthy, functioning heart visit:

Preventing Obesity and Chronic Disease

Losing 5 to 15 percent of your weight can lower your chances for developing heart disease or having a stroke. If you weigh 200 pounds, this means losing as little as 10 pounds. Weight loss may improve your blood pressure, triglyceride, and cholesterol levels; improve how your heart works and your blood flows; and decrease inflammation throughout your body. .
