"Secret weapons" against

high blood pressure.

When we talk about heart disease, we're really talking about a disease of the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle.

A heart attack occurs when the coronary arteries fail to get enough blood to that muscle and it begins to die from lack of oxygen. Merely putting the victim in an oxygen tank will not solve the effects of heart failure either. It is the capacity and capability to perform of the heart that's the matter, not the availability of the oxygen in the atmosphere.

A stroke happens when the carotid arteries in the neck can't provide sufficient blood and oxygen to the brain, most typically when a clot forms in a narrowed carotid artery.

In many discussions of cholesterol, cigarette smoking, blood pressure, and other risk factors, we tend to forget the importance of the arteries themselves.

The human arteries may be illustrated in terms of our water plumbing, although not in the simplistic way that's commonly imagined. The arteries plaque, as arterial blockage is properly termed, doesn't accumulate on the inner walls of the arteries the way calcium builds up on our house's bathroom plumbing. rather, arterial blockage is a complex process that develops inside the layers of the walls of those arteries.
