Ignoring Heart Disease Won’t Lower Your Risk

Heart Disease is the number one cause of death in America.  Each day an average of 2,200 people die from heart disease, while 56% of adults have been told by a health care professional to improve their health to lower their risk.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans are just not motivated to do anything about it.

There are a number of High Risk Habits that can contribute to your chances of having a heart attack or stoke that are preventable.  These risks include high cholesterol, high blood sugar, overweight or obesity, high blood sugar, lack of exercise and smoking.

Believe it or not, the cost of heart disease is over $108 Billion each year according to the American Heart Association!  This total includes the cost of health care services, medication and the loss of productivity.

83% of Americans believe that heart attacks and strokes can be prevented, but are not motivated to do anything.  When the statistics show that 1 in 3 deaths in the United States are caused by heart disease, you have no other choice then to take this disease seriously before it is too late.
