Cardiovascular Disease - #1 Cause of Death (Singapore Health Foundation)

Slightly less than 1 in 4 Singaporeans aged 30 to 69 years have hypertension. Hypertension increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries). Atherosclerosis may lead to cardiovascular disease.

 

The Neck Has Two Main Carotid Arteries

With each heartbeat, the heart pumps blood carrying oxygen and nutrients to all body cells; 20% of the blood flowing from the heart is pumped to the brain through the right and left carotid arteries that run up to the brain along either side of the neck. These vitally important arteries are prone to atherosclerosis which is the damaging process that clogs arteries in the heart, kidnetsm legs and elsewhere. Buildup of plaque in the carotids usually go unnoticed. For some people, the first sign of trouble may be a transient ischemic attack or a stroke.

 

Good Circulation For Good Health

Great health comes with good blood circulation. As blood returns to the heart, it transports carbon dioxide and waste from the cells to excretory organs for expulsion. This supports the proper functioning of our organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, kidney and spleen.
