Heart disease is the number one killer in the world. It kills more people than cancer in the USA. And heart disease can gradually build up. All of the risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure (called hypertension), obesity and diabetes can gradually damage the heart. It is important to always assess your risk factors for heart disease at regular checkups. Heart disease or even heart attacks do not usually occur spontaneously, but occur after a gradual build up, particularly from arteriosclerosis.
