Heart Health Facts
Nearly half of all adults in the United States now have some form of cardiovascular disease, with 116 million US adults estimated to have high blood pressure – also known as hypertension, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
These two remain the leading causes of death in our nation, but adopting healthy behaviors, around the way we eat and engage in physical activity, can have a great impact on decreasing the risk factors.
