Deadly Atherosclerosis: How to prevent it

Atherosclerosis is a disease process that can lead to the obstruction of coronary blood flow. As a result, the electrical properties of the heart and its inability to function as a pump may be seriously compromised. Abnormal cardiac rhythms (arrhythmias), can be detected by abnormal electrocardiograms.

Atherosclerosis is the most common form of arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and, through its contribution to heart disease and stroke, is responsible for about 50% of the deaths in the United States [and seems to be increasing].
