In the United States heart disease and stroke account for more than forty percent of all deaths. One person dies every 33 seconds from cardiovascular disease. Over one fourth of the population has some form of cardiovascular disease, with over six million hospitalizations each year, costing an estimated $351 billion for the care of heart disease and stroke for 2003.
