Why is this important?

Coronary heart disease occurs when the coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged by fat and cholesterol deposits (plaques) and cannot supply enough blood to the heart. As the arteries narrow, or as the plaques rupture, the flow of blood to the heart can slow or stop, causing chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, a heart attack or other symptoms. Nationally, Coronary Heart Disease makes up the majority of heart disease deaths. In 2006, 425,425 Americans died of coronary heart disease. Heart disease is also very costly economically with projected costs in 2010 of $316 billion on health care services, medications, and lost productivity.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to reduce the coronary heart disease death rate to 103.4 deaths per 100,000 population.
