Almost 75% of deaths in the United States are attributed to just 10 causes, and a top 3 causes accounting more than 50% of deaths. A total of 2,626,418 deaths were registered in 2014, with the same causes as in 2013. Hopefully, all of the terrifying data will help develop prevention programs.
10. Heart disease
Heart disease has topped the list for years now, and still remains the first leading cause of deaths for both men and women. This disease can include many conditions that result in heart attack or stroke.
The best prevention from heart disease are proper protection and awareness of the symptoms and warning signs (chest pain, nausea, breathlessness, cold sweats and others) of a heart attack. Protection means following a healthy lifestyle and dietary modifications that ensures lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as avoiding smoking and stress.
