Heart Disease

Every 7 minutes in Canada, someone dies from heart disease or stroke. According to Statistics Canada, heart disease and stroke are two of the three leading causes of death in Canada (the first being cancer). A report, released in 2010, determined that heart disease and stroke costs the Canadian economy more than $20.9 billion every year in physician services, hospital costs, lost wages and decreased productivity. This doesn’t take into account the emotional cost of being sick or losing a loved one.

Cardiovascular disease is defined as diseases and injuries of the cardiovascular system: the heart, the blood vessels of the heart and the arteries that run throughout the body and brain. Stroke is the result of a blood flow problem in the brain and is considered a form of cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is a range of diseases affecting the heart including atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries due to plaque.  A proactive approach to heart health (especially for those with a family history of heart disease) can save lives.
