960,000 Broken Hearts

April 19, 2006

By Louis Hart AKA Doc Darville

Every year heart disease claims more lives than the next 4 leading causes of death combined. That includes all cancers and every kind of accident imaginable.

According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention 40% of all recorded deaths are caused by heart disease or similar disorders (stroke – high blood pressure).

That works out to whopping 960,000 Americans dead each year because of faulty tickers!

Right now there are over 58 million people suffering from high blood pressure – coronary heart disease – stroke – or rheumatic heart disease. That works out to about $185 billion in medical costs and treatments annually.

And rates here in the US are among the highest in the world.

We eat way too much of all the wrong foods – we don’t enough exercise – and we over indulge in our vices like drinking and smoking.

But don’t worry -- for every problem there’s a solution and this one happens to be easy.

Take it from a guy that’s had 3 heart attacks and fought his way back. It’s possible – even easy to turn this bus around. You just have to make a few smart healthy choices:

  1. Talk to your doctor – early detection is key to a successful recovery
  2. Reduce or if possible eliminate all stress from your life – worrying never solves anything
  3. Exercise, exercise and more exercise – remember your body is like a sports car and every now and then you have to put the pedal to the metal.
  4. Watch what you eat – being overweight leaves the door wide open for a host of health problems, heart disease and stroke are just the tip of the ice berg

Just between you and me -- I check my blood pressure my self at least once a week. And I highly recommend buying your own cuff and learning to check your own.

You can pick them up at most any medical supply store and they’re not expensive if you buy a base model.

It’s important to know where you stand from time to time so you can take the appropriate steps to correct any problems. And of course the sooner the better!

Early detection can be the difference between life and death.

So remember, your heart is the most important muscle in your body. Take care of it and you’re well on your way to 100 years of perfect health!

Stay healthy,
