Coronary heart disease (CHD) is arguably the UK’s biggest killer

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is arguably the UK’s biggest killer. CHD develops when the blood supply to the muscles and tissues of the heart becomes obstructed by the build-up of fatty materials inside the walls of the coronary arteries.

CHD causes around 74,000 deaths each year. That’s an average of 200 people every day.

In the UK, there are an estimated 2.3 million people living with the condition.

About one in six men and one in nine women die from the disease.

Think we all know the answer!
