Heart disease is in the news—a lot. But what is it, what causes it, and importantly—how can you treat and prevent it?
Heart disease is a catch-all phrase for a range of conditions that affect the heart. They include heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. The causes of heart disease are as varied as the conditions.
Treatment options also vary depending on the condition, but for the majority, addressing lifestyle, diet, and fitness play a significant role in both treatment and prevention.
