February is American Heart Health Month

Important Statistics about Heart Health

About 600,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for both men and women in the United States. 

Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing more than 385,000 people annually.

Every year about 935,000 Americans have a heart attack.

Heart attacks have several major warning signs and symptoms

  • Chest pain or discomfort.
  • Upper body pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or upper stomach.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Nausea, lightheadedness, or cold sweats.

High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, and smoking are key heart disease risk factors for heart disease. 49% of Americans have at least one of these three risk factors.
