According to the American Heart Association, over 7 million Americans have suffered a heart attack in their lifetime. Heart disease causes roughly 1.2 million heart attacks each year, but sometimes a heart attack can be brought on from other, more surprising factors.
Hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, smoking, and stress are common risk factors for heart attacks, along with family history and old age. But did you know that even low HDL – the “good” cholesterol – can be a risk…Read full post
What would women be without men. We criticize them, we get angry at them, we argue with them, we sometimes even hate them!
