Heart Disease Quiz

How much do you know about heart disease?

  1. In the United States, 500 people die of cardiovascular disease every day.
  2. Heart disease may be linked to a variety of risk factors, some of them controllable (such as diet and lifestyle), others uncontrollable (such as heredity and advancing age).
  3. Scientists have yet to determine which lifestyle factors, if any, affect heart disease.
  4. Symptoms of a heart problem can include chest pain -- either tight and suffocating, or sharp and piercing -- and the feeling that the heart is fluttering, thumping, pounding or racing.
  5. Women should be just as concerned about their own risk of coronary heart disease as they are about their husbands', fathers', and sons' risk. It's not just a man's disease.
