Heart disease is the leading cause of death in developed countries, a fact that has been documented for several decades. Each year coronary heart disease kills thousands of people who were otherwise in good health. Premature death from coronary heart disease can be avoided. This volume of the AMA Home Medical Library explains in detail how heart disease varies in different countries around the world and why certain changes you can make to your way of life will reduce your risk of suffering a heart attack. Later in this book, we describe how the healthy heart works to maintain the circulation of blood around the body. We also review the range of disorders that can affect this powerful muscle and its blood vessels - from bith defects and faulty heart valves to the degeneration that can affect your arteries in old age.
