Your heart is the hardest working organ in the body. 

The heart pumps about 115,000 times per day, delivering more than 2,000 gallons of blood through 60,000 miles of veins.  It takes only 20 seconds for blood to travel through the entire circulatory system!  The heart has a lot of work to do.  Lets help the heart’s very important work.

It’s a national tragedy to have more than 647,000 Americans a year die from heart disease, ranked #1 in deaths, and another more than 140,000 from stroke, ranked #5 among deaths in the US.  One of these days it will total over 1,000,000 because 18 million Americans have heart disease right now and dying at the rate of one every 37 seconds.  1 in 3 Americans each year die from heart related disease.  It is the number one killer in the US, even eclipsing death by cancer.  High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are the major risk factors and 47% of Americans are at risk right now because 1 in 3 has 1 or more of these risk factors.

As if the heart wasn’t enough concern, high blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney failure, yes kidney failure, in the US. The number of deaths from essential hypertension and hypertensive renal (kidney) disease is 35,316.  No wonder HBP is called the “silent killer”.

Don’t impede the life of your heart.  From bad eating habits and lifestyles to environmental conditions and heredity, it is a terrible way to die when these illnesses can be prevented or delayed by better treatment, lifestyles, and diet.  It’s a matter of quality of life in later years.

The costs of health care and lost wages for heart diseases exceed a staggering $219 billion dollars each year!!!  And we wonder why our health insurance is so high?!?
