Cardiovascular diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally. An estimated 17.9 million people died globally from cardiovascular related diseases in 2016. Of those deaths, approximately 85% were due to heart attack or stroke. Heart attacks and strokes are caused by a blockage that prevents blood flow to the heart or brain. The most common reason for a blockage is due to a build-up and hardening of fatty deposits along the vessels that lead to the heart or brain.

Symptoms of heart attack include:

  • Chest pain
  • Pain in the left should
  • Tightness and pressure of the back, chest, shoulder, or jaw
  • Shortness of breath or light-headedness

Symptoms of stroke include:

  • Sudden loss of balance, dizziness or coordination
  • Sudden blurred vision or trouble seeing
  • Slurred speech, trouble speaking, or confusion
  • Sudden weakness or numbness of an arm or leg
  • Facial droop or numbness, especially on one side
