Heart disease stats are alarming

-A A +A
By Staff

During February, which is American Heart Month, we are reminded of the toll heart disease takes on our country each year. The statistics are terrifying.

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 2,400 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day — an average of one death every 37 seconds.

Coronary heart disease caused one of every five deaths (451,326 deaths) in the United States in 2004.

About every 26 seconds, an American will have a coronary event, and about every minute, someone will die from one.
