1. Cardiovascular Disease
It’s not just a man thing; heart disease is the leading cause of death for both genders, according to CDC. In the US alone, it accounts for 1 in every 4 deaths yearly. Heart disease is caused by cholesterol plaque buildups in the arteries of the brain and the heart. When these become unstable, blot clotting ensues which result to the blocking of the affected artery leading to a heart attack or stroke.
There are risk factors regarding this health problem that you can’t control like genetics. However, the health choices you make has a great influence on it. Steps like managing stress, diabetes and blood pressure reduce your chances to getting heart disease a great deal. Having a healthy lifestyle does, too.
