Heart Health & Wellness
A Sad Statistic
Heart disease is still the number one killer of both men and women in our country. Sad isn’t it? Particularly because, when found early, heart disease can be treated and life threatening events like a heart attack or stroke avoided.
So if it can be easily treated, why is it still the number one killer? Well,heart disease is often a silent killer. In its early stages, heart disease produces no symptoms so people – people just like you- wait until they have a serious event before they search out help.
