CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE

It is a common belief that cancer is the number one cause of death in the United States.  However, it is actually heart disease or coronary artery disease that is the leading cause of death in the United States, affecting more than 13 million Americans.

Coronary arteries are the pipeline to the heart for oxygen and nutrients found in the blood stream.  They start out in infants as smooth and elastic but over time may become narrow and rigid, restricting the blood flow and, thus, the oxygen and nutrients the heart must have to continue doing its job.  What causes this change in the inside of the arteries?  It is usually plaque buildup, which in turn causes inflammation and inflammatory cells that further restrict the blood flow.  The plaque can form as a result of improper dietary habits, little or no exercise, smoking, and, in some cases, heredity.

They also won 2 Team Awards; the Spirit Award and the Most Points Overall. We were all super excited to participate in this year’s Hometown Region 1 Olympics and look forward to bringing home more “hardware” next year!
