A Must for Everyone to Get!

Having been a Cardiac Nurse for some while now, I cannot stress enough the importance of a Heart Healthy Lifestyle and Prevention as a key to overcome this devastating and life threatening disease. Here's is an opportunity to have a very valuable educational tool delivered free to your home.

Complete a short 60 second survey to receive a FREE 'Assassin Within' CD about heart disease. With 'Assassin Within' you'll learn how to improve your cardiovascular health.

Quick Facts about Heart Disease: (according to the CDC)
  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men in the United States.
  • At least 58,800,000 million Americans (i.e. 1 person in 4) suffer from some form of heart disease.
  • Worldwide, 8.6 million women die from heart disease each year, accounting for a third of all deaths in women.
  • Heart disease doesn't just kill the elderly -- it is the leading cause of death for ALL Americans age 35 and older. Heart disease accounts for over one million deaths each year; in 160,000 of those deaths the individuals were 35 to 64 years old.

Many of these deaths could be prevented because Coronary Heart Disease is related to certain aspects of lifestyle. Risk factors include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity -- all of which can be controlled. Although medical treatments for heart disease have come a long way, controlling risk factors remains the key to preventing illness and death from this Disease.
