Nope
I like to Zumba using Wii.

Yes my grandpa had heart attack.
Nothing, I used to do treadmill. Now I try to do weights.
Nothing everyone has
their own responsibility to worry about.
Maybe but I am too old now.

conditions of my heart.
Cardiovascular Diseases
Coronary Heart
What is Coronary Heart Disease?
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle.
When plaque builds up in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis. The buildup of plaque occurs over many years.
What causes CHD?
-Smoking
-High levels of certain fats and cholesterol in the blood
-High blood pressure
-High levels of sugar in the blood due to insulin for diabetes.
Signs and Symptoms
The most common symptom of CHD is chest pain or discomfort around the area of the heart that doesn't get enough oxygenated blood. it may feel like pressure or squeezing in your chest.
Another common symptom is the shortness in breathing.
How is CHD treated?
Follow a healthy diet.
Following a healthy diet can
prevent or reduce high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol
and help you maintain a healthy weight.
Be physically active.
Exercising can lower many CHD risk factors
including high blood pressures and fat cholesterol.
Maintain a healthy weight.
A general goal to aim for is a body
mass index (BMI) of less than 25.
Quit smoking.
Smoking can raise your risk for CHD and heart attack and
worsen other CHD risk factors.
Manage stress.
Learning how to manage stress, relax, and cope with problems can improve your emotional and physical health.
Medicine.
Taking medications can reduce your heart’s workload, decrease your chance of having a heart attack or dying suddenly, and it
can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.
Procedures and surgery.
Talk to your doctor about the
right treatment for you.
Prevention
- adopt a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy.

- control your weight by achieving the right BMI.
Heart Attack
What causes heart attack?
- heart attacks occur if one or more of the arteries supplying the heart with blood becomes narrow or blocked.
What are the symptoms of a heart attack?
- chest pain, chest tightness, dizziness, and shortness of breath.
- other symptoms can include numbness down the arm, a feeling of pressure on your chest, unexplained vomiting, or heartburn-like feeling.
Some preventions for heart attacks:
Eating a healthy diet (low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium) and a regular exercise routine will help strengthen the cardiovascular system and not only reduce the risks of developing disease.
Treatments concerning heart attacks:
Medication given early to control blood pressure, prevent blood clots, and relax arteries can be the difference between life and death of the heart muscle. Doctors can perform a surgical procedure to restore blood flow to the heart muscle if the condition is severe.
Stroke
Cause:
most common cause of a stroke is a blood clot that breaks off and blocks one of the blood vessels in the brain. Blood clots form in areas where plaque has built up within the artery. These clots can be easily dislodged by the normal flow of blood.
What are some symptoms of stroke?
The symptoms of a stroke depend on the area that the blocked vessel supplies. Some common symptoms include weakness or paralysis on one side of the face or body, difficulty talking, difficulty swallowing, confusion, or even death. High blood pressure also plays a role in strokes.
Preventions:
Individuals should participate in regular exercise, should not smoke, follow a low fat and low cholesterol diet, and watch their weight.
Treatments:
Seek immediate medical attention. Doctors can deliver medications to treat or lessen the effects of a stroke. These patients will need to enter a physical or occupational therapy program if they have suffered a stroke. With therapy, patients can try to relearn activities that they can no longer do as a result of the stroke.
Personal Reflection:
Cardiovascular activities are very important for our heart. Many people don't know the importance of exercising, for their heart. They might know how to count their pulse while they exercise, but they don't know what the right target heart range for their age. In this project, I learned the different cardiovascular diseases and ways to lessen the risk to prevent it. Another thing that's very important is to exercise regularly and eat healthy. You can't prevent the risk of getting heart attacks or heart failure if you don't take care of your body. It's very important to stay fit by eating healthy, nutritious food!
