“Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., and a major cause of disability,” said Dr. Aziz Ahmed, an interventional cardiologist who is medical director of Adventist GlenOaks Hospital’s cardiac catheterization laboratory. “Making healthy choices, including lifestyle changes, can greatly reduce the risk of heart attacks. It’s also important to know the warning signs of heart disease.”

 

About 785,000 Americans have a coronary attack, and about 470,000 have a recurrent heart attack each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
