Heart Health
What is a Heart Attack?
Heart Disease = Fatty Plaque in Arteries
This is the major cause of a Heart Attack
Why I chose this topic
I'm passionate about Heart Health
My old job involved telling people after they had a heart attack
It's a pump
powered by an electrical circuit
that also needs its own blood supply
It can happen in other places, not just the Heart
What you can do to reduce your risk?
Things I
CAN
change
Things I CAN'T change
The aim is:
Smoking = 0 || Smoking = Smoking--
Quit Smoking or Reduce Smoking
This will decrease your risk significantly
