In the United States, Heart Disease has become one of the fastest growing concerns for most Americans. Research released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that 1 out of every 4 people will be affected by some sort of Heart Disease in their lifetime. The cost of medicating and providing health care services for people with heart disease grosses over 108 billion dollars each year. Many people have begun to refer to heart disease as a new epidemic that is severely impacting our population.
