According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.

One in every four deaths is the result of a heart disease resulting in about 610,000 people dying from the condition each year.

Heart disease doesn’t discriminate. Almost half of Americans are at risk for heart disease, and the numbers are rising.

While heart disease can be deadly, it’s also preventable in most people.
