Heart Disease

Heart disease is a term used to describe the different diseases and conditions that affect the heart.  In 2004, these diseases killed more than 36,000 Pennsylvanians.  In fact, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men in the United States.  Some heart diseases are inherited conditions, but others can be prevented through lifestyle changes.  By not smoking, getting plenty of exercise, eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting regular screenings for blood pressure and cholesterol you can beat many kinds of heart disease.
