Heart disease and stroke are at epidemic levels in the United States every year. The statistics are staggering and continuing to climb. A 2012 American Heart Association report offers recent numbers for the incidence of some level of cardiovascular disease (CVD):


  • 10–12 percent of men and women between the ages of 20 and 39
  • 35–40 percent of adults between the ages of 40 and 59
  • 69 percent average of all adults aged 60 to 79
  • 80 percent of all adults over the age of 80


Fortunately, deaths due to CVD have gone down over the past few decades, but heart attack and stroke still remain the two top killers in the U.S. Part of the reason that the death toll may be in a state of reduction is because doctors are very clear with their patients about the risk factors for stroke and heart disease, and can treat patients preventively with well tolerated medications.


Doctors instill in patients the importance of making lifestyle changes to prevent the debilitating conditions and even reverse heart damage that has already progressed. Technology is assisting the doctors’ efforts with tests that help to catch the early onset of many forms of cardiovascular disorders. Finally, over the last decades medication has been developed which drastically reduces the mortality and morbidity associated with heart disease and stroke.
