Let’s start at the heart
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in Western societies, and the cause of up to a thirdof all deaths worldwide!
If your body could be compared to a car, then your heart is its engine – the power unit that keeps the machine moving, and pumping oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to every cell in your body. Your arteries are the highways to your heart. If your arteries become diseased or inflamed, then your life may be in danger.
