The facts surrounding heart disease in the United States are clear. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death for American men and women, killing about 600,000 people every year. High blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of Americans have at least one of these three risk factors.

It is important to know the warning signs of a heart attack in order to prevent severe damage to the heart or even death. Some of the major warning signs include chest pain or discomfort; upper body pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or upper stomach; shortness of breath; and nausea, lightheadedness, or cold sweats.
