Approximately 600,000 people die from heart disease in the US every year (1 in every 4 deaths). Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of heart disease, claiming close to 400,000 people a year.
Not all chest pain is heart related but it is always a good idea to get yearly check-ups and don't ignore your chest pain.
