Heart disease kills about 600,000 people in the United States every year. It is the leading cause of death in the United States. Heart disease is caused by fatty plaque that builds up in a person’s arteries. This build-up of plaque narrows the arteries and sometimes prevents blood flow to the heart. When the heart does not get enough blood, it cannot function correctly and the body starts to shut down.
