The alarming facts about heart attack and stroke in Canada

The alarming facts about heart attack and stroke in Canada

Each year, over 60,000 Canadians will suffer their first heart attack.  

Another 50,000 will suffer a stroke.

This alarming fact points to a critical issue across the country: cardiovascular disease 

High cholesterol is one of the most critical factors that contributes to cardiovascular risk, which can lead to heart attack or stroke. The reason for this: it causes a buildup of plaque in the arteries, which hardens and restricts blood flow. 

Diet, lifestyle, even whether you’re a male or female are related to a person’s risk of heart disease. 

Early detection and management of high cholesterol can help reduce your risk of heart disease.  

Take action, before it’s too late. A first heart attack or stroke can be a warning sign. But there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of future ones. Speak to your doctor about how you can take control of your heart health.
