About Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)
CVD can be generally defined as any abnormal condition characterized by dysfunction of the heart and blood vessels. CVD includes atherosclerosis (especially coronary heart disease which can lead to heart attacks), cerebrovascular disease (stroke), and hypertension (high blood pressure). The underlying cause of most CVD is a gradual clogging of the arteries (atherosclerosis) that supply blood to the heart, brain and other vital organs.
The American Heart Association estimates that almost 80 million American Adults have one or more types of cardiovascular disease. CVD remains the number one killer of developed nations. Nearly 2400 Americans die each day from cardiovascular disease - that is 1 person will die every 36 seconds.
