Question and answer
Q: all cardiovascular diseases are caused by poor lifestyle choices
A: Causes of cardiovascular disease While cardiovascular disease can refer to many different types of heart or blood vessel problems, [ the term is often used to mean damage caused to your heart or blood vessels by atherosclerosis (ath-ur-o-skluh-RO-sis), a buildup of fatty plaques in your arteries. This is a disease that affects your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen and
nutrients from your heart to the rest of your body. Healthy arteries are flexible and strong. Over time, however, too much pressure in your arteries can make the walls thick and stiff ? sometimes restricting blood flow to your organs and tissues. This process is called arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis is the most common form of this disorder. Atherosclerosis is also the most common cause of cardiovascular disease, and it's often caused by an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking. All of these are major risk factors for developing atherosclerosis and, in turn, cardiovascular disease. Causes of heart arrhythmia Common causes of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), or conditions that can lead to arrhythmias include: Heart defects you're born with (congenital heart defects) Coronary artery disease High blood pressure Diabetes Smoking Excessive use of alcohol or caffeine Drug abuse Stress Some over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, dietary supplements and herbal remedies Valvular heart disease ]
