Bad habits the biggest cause of heart disease

Filed under:

Heart disease is a major health threat that everybody should be concerned about, and it seems the more research we do the more it's becoming painfully obvious that the majority of risk factors are things that are under our own control. Bad habits, personal lifestyle routines and choices, are the biggest culprits causing us to get sick.

This challenges the previous widely held belief that only about half of heart disease cases could possibly have been prevented by healthier habits (or a lack of bad ones, like smoking).

To me this is both good news and bad news. Obviously it's not good that we make so many unhealthy choices as a society that we're getting heart disease on a regular basis, but it's always good to have choices and be able to impact our own lives in a positive way. Whether we choose to take advantage by living healthier or not at least we have the option.

Hi,

For the past five years, 75,000 cases of cardiovascular disease have been cured, through a miracle mineral supplement. Medical advancements, such as this, are because of the work organizations, such as yourself, have done. We here, at Disease.com (an established website to the preventions and treatments of diseases), have been inspired by the awareness and research your organization has done. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Let's keep America's heart beating.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank You,
