Heart Disease is the loss of blood flow and resultant damage to heart muscle.  It can include heart attacks and angina (chest pain with exertion). Symptoms can include no symptoms, chest pain that can radiate to jaw or left arm, shortness of breath with exertion, and fatigue.  Modifiable risk factors are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking and obesity.

Heart Disease can be decreased by diet, exercise and addressing modifiable risk factors.
