Because heart disease is the leading cause of death world wide, across all countries & income levels (according to the World Health Organization).
Heart disease, also called cardiovascular disease (CVD), is a term that includes:
- Narrowing and/or hardening of blood vessels.
- Irregular heart beat
- Heart abnormalities you were born with
They are responsible for transferring blood throughout your body. Your blood contains oxygen & important nutrients such as vitamins, as well as hormones that will keep you sexually active.
When there is damage to the cells lining your arteries, your body will deposit materials to cover up the damage. One of those materials (but definitely not the only one) is cholesterol. This deposit for the cover-up of a damaged artery is called plaque. Plaque will cause your arteries to narrow down, to the point where the blood flow is hindered. When the blood flow is hindered, heart attack & stroke may result.
