Far too many young Americans are having heart attacks or strokes, and many are life-ending occurrences. In fact, statistics show that someone in the U.S. has a heart attack every 43 seconds.
Heart disease and stroke are the leading cause of death on America. These attacks can also make it impossible for some adults to return to work and everyday life. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are more people under age 65 who are dying from preventable heart disease and strokes than those who are older than 65. Heart attack and strokes have long been thought of as a “man’s disease”, but they kill more women each year than the next four causes of death combined, including cancer.
