Heart Disease Kills Thousands

Ali Alhamdani

A lot of people die from diseases but the main disease that kills people is heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and woman.  Every year in the United States, about 610,000 people die from heart disease.

Heart disease has another name and that is Cardiovascular disease. There is a lot of types of heart diseases. One type is Coronary Artery disease which is damage or disease in the heart’s major blood vessels, most people die from that type but that is one type of many diseases.

Another type of disease is High blood pressure, a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high and you can prevent this from eating healthy and be active. Another type of heart disease is Cardiac Arrest and Congestive heart failure, these two types will kill someone in their sleep.

Cardiac Arrest is an unexpected loss of heart function, breathing, and consciousness. Congestive heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart doesn’t pump blood as well as it should and improper beating of the heart, whether irregular, too fast, or too slow.  There is some ways to prevent this disease.

One way is control your blood pressure by eating healthy and avoid fast foods. Another way is stay at a healthy weight and get regular exercise, so about 3 days of running or walking.  One last way to prevent a heart attack is limiting drinking alcohol and limiting smoking tobacco. LHS senior, Max Lewellyn said, ” Heart disease is not a joke and you should eat more healthy food to avoid this crazy disease.”  More people need to know how to prevent this terrible disease so more people will stay alive and be healthy. In addition to this, Subodh Gupta, the author of 7 Food Habits for Weight Loss Forever, said”“If only we correct our eating habits than not only we would have perfect body weight but also we can get rid of most of the diseases.”
