- CVD effects over 36% of US adults and accounts for over 30% of annual mortality in the United States.
- Lifetime risk for developing CVD at age forty is 2 in 3 for men and 1 in 2 for women.
- On average, more than 2,200 Americans die of CVD each day, an average of 1 death every 39 seconds. CVD currently claims more lives each year than cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, and accidents combined.
- Approximately every 34 seconds, an American will have a myocardial infarction. Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke.
