Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of illness and death in the U.S. Myocardial infarction is the medical term for heart attack. Some heart attacks occur without warning, but in some people there are early and important warning signs: chest pain upon exertion, shortness of breath, palpitations. People who are overweight, smokers, diabetics, and minorities are more likely to have heart disease. If you have one or more of the warning signs, see your doctor and make an effort to change any unhealthy lifestyle habits. Make an effort to quit smoking, eat fresh, healthy foods, and exercise regularly. Heart disease and the risk of heart attacks can be reversed with long-term lifestyle changes. For more information, see the MTN Topics Pages on Myocardial Infarctions
