Heart disease is on the rise ya’ll.  According to today’s infographic, it is the number one killer in the U.S., causing 36% of deaths each year. I’m sure it is because of an accumulation of numerous things, such as:  poor dietary choices, our sedentary lifestyle, and genetics. Today’s infographic provides an excellent overview of both the causes and preventatives of heart disease.

I know it’s not favorable, but a sure way to lower your risk of heart disease is to live a healthy lifestyle that includes healthy eating and regular exercise. Even small lifestyle changes, like taking the stairs or parking at the end of the parking lot, can positively impact your health. [via]
