  • Heart disease: 631,636

Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States. However, there are ways to help prevent death from heart disease. Not smoking or using any tobacco products is the first and most obvious way of helping your heart out. Remember to get active. Exercise is a crucial part of keeping a healthy heart. Physical activity helps manage your weight and reduces the chance you will develop other conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Exercise also decrease stress levels, which is a cause of heart disease.

  • Cancer: 559,888

There are some ways to decrease your likelihood of developing cancer. Again, quitting smoking and not using tobacco products is one of the most crucial ways to cut cancer risks. Makes you really wonder if smoking is really worth it. Make sure to put on sunscreen when going outside to protect from UV rays. Also, remember to eat your fruits and vegetables and to go out and exercise.

  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119

Surprise, surprise, quitting smoking is one of the top ways to prevent stroke. Further prevention suggestions are to moderate alcohol consumption, keep an eye on your blood pressure and get it checked at least once a year. Also eating a low fat and low salt diet is important. Remember to always exercise, it really helps in the prevention of a lot of different conditions, stroke included.

  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583

To prevent lower respiratory diseases, quitting smoking is essential. The chemicals you inhale from cigarettes are very damaging to your lungs and the rest of your body. Furthermore, remember to eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regularly.

Swine Flu Claims First U.S Victim

The Swine Influenza has now officially claimed its first victim from the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has posted in the 11:00AM ET update on April 29, 2009, that there has been the first confirmed death caused by Swine flu in the United States. Of the 91 laboratory confirmed cases, a 23-month-old child from Texas has become the first unfortunate victim.

Officials are surprised however, of how mild most of the cases have been outside of Mexico. With over 159 people dead from the effects of the Swine Flu in Mexico, many wonder why U.S citizens have experienced much more mild symptoms. As of now, many confirmed cases in the United States and elsewhere have not required hospitalization from the effects caused by Swine Flu. However, authorities are preparing for what now seems like an inevitable pandemic, with the CDC raising the flu threat level to 5, only a single level below a full-scale pandemic.

With the inevitability, or so it seems of a global pandemic, U.S vaccine producers have had to switch into a higher gear. The plan for now seems to be that vaccine producers hope to develop and manufacture a large enough supply of Swine flu vaccine for every American citizen by September.

What Is The Significance Of Swine Flu Reaching Threat Level 5?

For those who do not understand the significance of the threat level of the Swine flu being raised to level 5 allow me to give an explanation. There are a total of 6 levels for the virus to reach pandemic level. With the Swine flu at level 5 it needs only to reach level 6 to become a full-scale pandemic. Level 5 is also considered the start of the Emergency Response level, with training increasing implementation. For an example of what a pandemic could me we only have to look back to 1918-1919, when the most severe influenza of the 20th century emerged and killed an estimated 40-50 million people globally.
