User: what cause heart disease?

Weegy: Cardiovascular disease or heart disease is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels (arteries and veins). [ While the term technically refers to any disease that affects the cardiovascular system (as used in MeSH C14 or International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD10), ICD-10 Chapter IX: Diseases of the circulatory system), it is often used to refer to those related to atherosclerosis and/or hypertension. The causes, mechanisms, and treatments of these conditions often overlap. Cardiovascular diseases remain the biggest cause of deaths worldwide, though over the last two decades, cardiovascular mortality rates have declined in many high-income countries. At the same time cardiovascular deaths and disease have increased at an astonishingly fast rate in low- and middle-income countries. Although cardiovascular disease usually affects older adults, the antecedants of cardiovascular disease, notably (atherosclerosis) begin in early life, making primary prevention efforts necessary from childhood.. There is therefore increased emphasis on preventing atherosclerosis by modifying risk factors, such as healthy eating, exercise, and avoidance of smoking. ]
