Who are at risk for Heart Disease?

Heart disease is the number one cause of death for men and women globally.; about one in four people die of heart disease every year.
But many types of heart disease are preventable, by reducing risk factors and being aware of the signs and symptoms. For example, you can reduce your risk factors for coronary artery disease(CAD), the most common type of heart disease, through lifestyle changes and medication therapy.
