3 Keys to Avoid the ‘American Disease’

Diseased+Artery 3 Keys to Avoid the American Disease A key…a small instrument specially cut to fit into a lock and move its bolt. Unlocking your heart for good maintenance can be done with understanding, acceptance of facts and taking action to remove yourself from the risk equation. Read carefully. You’ll be ahead of the game if you use them as a guide…and act!

To understand is to know what heart disease is and to be able to recognize it if it strikes. It isn’t restricted to “old people” as we often and commonly like to presume. Heart disease is infiltrating the lives of our young as they become more obese, develop diabetes at an earlier and earlier age, they start smoking at a younger age, and eat less and less healthy foods.

The primary fact is that plaque is the key nemesis to a heart. It presents as a collection of proteins, fats which includes cholesterol, immune system cells and other components accumulating on the inside walls of our coronary arteries. With this plaque build-up comes eventual blockage that causes a heart attack. There are approximately 1.1 million heart attacks every year. One out of three of those will die according to the Framingham Heart Study [FHS].

This is why action is critical. When you get solid statistical data backed by a half century old institute, isn’t it worth doing something to change the trajectory of your life? If not for yourself, for your wife, your husband, your parents and, if for no other, your children?

Predictors of cardiovascular disease, according to the FHS, are age, diabetes, smoking, blood pressure indicators, cholesterol readings and obesity. In 1948 when the FHS began, little was known about the cause of heart disease except that death rates were increasing. Doctors began looking at the hearts of young soldiers who died in the Korean War and those at an average age of 22 had signs of heart disease. The number was 77.3% with “gross evidence” of heart disease.¹ That number, today, hasn’t improved, but awareness has. More and more people are beginning to do something about the way they live and the need to be ever vigilant with regard to our own possibility of cardiovascular disease [CVD]. Changing what we eat, our lev els of stress and getting off the couch can be the difference between living a short life and living a long one.

There is no other study by which to measure ourselves when it comes to our heart than the Framingham Heart Study. Take a look at their risk scores. Their website is easily accessible. The link is here. Just click. You will be very glad you did and so will your parents and your children.
