January 25, 2013 | By

Heart Disease is the number one cause of death in America. Each day an average of 2,200 people die from heart disease, while 56% of adults have been told by a health care professional to improve their health to lower their risk. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans are just not motivated to do anything about it.

There are a number of High Risk Habits that can contribute to your chances of having a heart attack or stoke that are preventable. These risks include high cholesterol, high blood sugar, overweight or obesity, high blood sugar, lack of exercise and smoking. 83% of Americans believe that heart attacks and strokes can be prevented, but are not motivated to do anything. When the statistics show that 1 in 3 deaths in the United States are caused by heart disease, you have no other choice then to take this disease seriously before it is too late.
