Heart Health Preventive Factors Contributing Factors What is Heart Disease 1.2 Million number of heart attacks
every year 12 Million suffering some form
of heart disease 39% of Americans who think
they are in good health 1% meet the standards of good health 108.9 billion Coronary heart disease costs the United States each year 34 seconds someone has
a heart attack 1 Minute someone dies from a heart disease-related event Statistics A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that brings oxygen to the heart muscle is severely reduced
or cut off completely Myocardial infarction – The damaging or death of an area of the heart muscle (myocardium) resulting from a blocked blood supply to that area; medical term for a heart attack. Coronary thrombosis – Formation of a clot in one of the arteries that conduct blood to the heart muscle. Also called coronary occlusion. Coronary occlusion – An obstruction of a coronary artery that hinders blood flow to some part of the heart muscle. A cause of heart attack. arterial spasms high blood pressure high cholesterol saturated fats broken heart syndrome stress diabetes tobacco sedentary lifestyle red meat alcohol weight gain American Heart Disease atherosclerosis ischemic attack stroke junk food processed foods Mayo Clinic
80% percent of heart disease is preventable PREVENTABLE CDC-Chronic diseases – such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis – are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems in the U.S. World Health Organization
80% of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn
surgeon, researcher and clinician at the Cleveland Clinic found it is possible to cure heart disease through changing your diet based on the results of a 20-year study Heart Attack Heart Disease FOOD Sugar and Sweeteners
A study from Emory University and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published in April, 2010, showed that sweeteners appear to lower levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol and raise triglycerides. Both of these effects increase the risk of heart disease. What's more, through their direct effects on insulin and blood sugar, refined starches and sugars are more likely than saturated fat to be the main dietary cause of coronary heart disease and type-2 diabetes.

Heart Disease

Ambro FreeDigitalPhotos.net LOL!
Laughing lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and may improve the lining of the blood vessels. Stress Epidemiological data show that chronic stress predicts the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD). Employees who experience work-related stress and individuals who are socially isolated or lonely have an increased risk of a first CHD event. In addition, short-term emotional stress can act as a trigger of cardiac events among individuals with advanced atherosclerosis Stress and sleep disturbance--a connection in CVD.
