One of your most vital vital-organs is your heart. Without it, the oxygen brought in by your lungs would not be carried to other organs, like your brain. Your body would have a challenging time fighting off infections and viruses because your blood is also responsible for delivering white blood cells where they are needed.
Since the cardiovascular system encompasses so much, problems and diseases that affect cardiovascular health can stem from several factors. Some conditions are genetic or congenital, meaning they’ve been present from birth, while other diseases are the result of lifestyle choices such as diet, exercise, smoking, and birth control. Additional conditions emerge from injury, infection, or other diseases in the body such as diabetes, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, and many others.
