Impact of heart disease on America
- 40% of all Americans die of heart attacks.
- 58% of deaths are related to cardiovascular disease.
- 10% die of strokes.
The tragedy of this is enormous. More than 1.3 million Americans will suffer a heart attack this year, and when consider that nobody really has to die from a heart- or circulatory system-related death, it is even more of a tragedy. The disability, suffering, and years of life lost are almost totally the result of dietary ignorance. It is not impossible or even difficult to protect yourself; you simply must eat properly. Nothing else can protect you.
