The number of Americans who die from heart disease every year is more than 50 million, with a staggering 1.5 million deaths each year.
But even this number is too high.
The World Health Organization estimates that 1.3 million people die from the disease each year, while other studies suggest that as many as 1.4 million people are infected with heart disease each day.
“We’re still in a state of denial,” said Dr. David Dorn, president of the American Heart Association.
“Heart disease kills at a rate that’s far higher than the number of people who are dying from cancer, or from diabetes or heart disease.
So it’s really hard for people to grasp that.”
There are several reasons for this.
“The big problem is that we have an incredibly limited amount of research on heart disease, and it’s a very difficult disease to understand,” said Dorn.
“What’s most important for people is to learn the signs and symptoms, because it’s very, very common for people not to recognize it.”
In the U.S., heart disease is classified by the World Health Organisation as an “unspecified” disease, which means there is no known cause.
While the disease can be treatable with medicines, there is limited evidence that it will ever be cured.
“It’s not going to go away,” Dorn said.
“But it’s definitely not going away.”
And because of this, many patients are being left untreated for months or years.
“When you’re waiting for a doctor to come and say, ‘OK, I need you to do something, this is going to take a while,’ that’s very disheartening,” said Elizabeth Cohen, a professor of epidemiology at Harvard University who has studied heart disease and co-authored a book on the topic.
“People don’t realize the impact that waiting is having on their health.”
So what’s the solution?
The American Heart Foundation has been working on a new plan to slow the rate of new cases of heart disease in the U!
The organization launched its “America’s Heart,” or a New American Heart, campaign in 2013, and now has more than 1.1 million participants, many of whom have been waiting months or even years for an appointment.
They are asked to send in their pictures of themselves and their symptoms.
“I was surprised how many people were willing to share their stories, because we’re trying to make a difference,” said Andrea Tulloch, who is one of the campaign’s lead organizers.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers of waiting for treatment and encourage people to take action by taking action to reduce their symptoms, even when they’re not aware of the signs of the disease.
This campaign was inspired by the #HeartForMe hashtag, which has been trending across social media since April 2016.
In the hashtag, people are encouraged to share pictures of their symptoms and tell their story.
The campaign is similar to the hashtag #NoMoreDiseases, which started in the United Kingdom and is similar in focus to #heartforme.
The hashtag, too, has inspired a number of organizations and organizations are working together to stop waiting for health care and prevent heart disease deaths.
One of the most important ways to do that is to share your symptoms and symptoms-free photo to help get people started on the right path, said Denny Miller, executive director of the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
For some, this isn’t the first time they’ve been on the road to recovery.
Denny said that the idea of sharing symptoms and stories with the public is especially important to those with diabetes or high blood pressure, who are often left with no treatment options.
“A lot of people with heart failure have been in the dark about their condition,” he said.
Another goal of the Heart For Me campaign is to improve the public health messaging for people living with heart diseases, especially to people who have never been diagnosed.
Miller said that Heart For ME is working with the CDC, FDA, the Department of Defense, and other health organizations to increase awareness of heart attacks and other heart problems.
“So much of this has to do with the misinformation that people are receiving about the disease,” he added.
Heart Disease in America is a series of six stories about how the American public is struggling with the impact of heart diseases and how we’re failing to protect our loved ones.
