The U.S imported more meat - 1.36 mil- lion metric tons -than any olhcr counlry in 1979, says the Depart- merit of Agriculture I I HEALTH ANSWERS from Frank QUESTION: What are some of the causes and !risks of heart disease? I recently read that cardio- vascular disorder of all types kill more people than anything else. ANSWER: You're right; nearly 2/3 of a million people die from heart at- tacks each year, The most common type of cardio- vascular disease is the form of hardening of the J arteries called athero- sclerosis. It starts when fats being transported by: the blood stream deposit themselves on the inner lining of the artery wall. i When the coronary ar- teries that supply the heart with blood become narrow, a clot may form next to the fatty deposit and block the artery, caus- ing a heart attack. If this blockage occurs in the brain, it is called a stroke. Because our living habitsl hormones, heredity, meta- bolism and diet all share the blame, it is important to understand how they in- teract to increase the risk of cardiovascular disor- ders.
