Heart disease cannot be underestimated as a major health problem.  Obviously, we all know about the seriousness of heart disease, but one of the things many people don't realize is the slow, insidious path that leads to it; poor diet, lack of exercise, not able to handle stress, cigarette smoking, lifestyle issues that can put you at greater risk.  Yes, there are certain people who have a family history which puts them at risk for heart disease, but clearly these other factors play a major role.
