Nurses at the health department say symptoms of heart disease range from shortness of breath to dizziness and chest pain.
They say by following a few simple steps, people can guard themselves against the condition that plagues an estimated 82 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Nurse June Eddings recommends "...regular check-ups, daily exercise -- walking at least 30 minutes a day -- eating a good, healthy diet -- a balanced, healthy diet -- and relieving stress as much as possible," are ways to reduce your chances of developing heart disease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of disability among Americans.
