Should the NHS treat smoking related diseases? Smoking can bring about lung infection by harming your airways routes and the little air sacs (alveoli) found in your lungs.

Cancer is the second largest cause of death in the United States of America, overall, according to the CDC, clocking in at around 575,691 lives in 2013 alone. Countless people have been affected or know someone who has been affected by cancer, and the search for a cure has been raging on for decades. Renal cancers, or cancer of the kidneys, the two bean shaped organs located to the right and left adjacent to a person’s spine, is the fifth most common form of cancer within the United States, affecting too many, too often. Often overshadowed by the greater publicized cancers, this often deadly disease’s information is not as widely known to the public as it should be to help combat this harmful cancer, and help those who are harmed by it.
Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and also one of the most preventable. In 2005, the total number of cardiovascular disease deaths had increased globally to 17.5 million from 14.4 million since 1990. Symptoms and triggers of this disease consist of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cigarette smoking, diabetes, poor diet, physical inactivity, and obesity. Over time, these risk factors cause changes in the heart and blood vessels that can lead to heart attacks, heart failure, and strokes. By 2013, 614,348 people died in the United States from heart disease, in my opinion that almost sounds like a pandemic.

Roughly 35% of cancer deaths are linked to obesity, diet, and physical inactivity. In the United States, obesity is linked with the development of many cases of cancer and is a factor in about 17% of all cancer deaths. Physical inactivity is believed to contribute to cancer risk not only through its effect on body weight but also through negative effects on immune system and endocrine system.

Every time someone lights up a cigarette they’re increasing their probability of procuring pneumonia, emphysema, lungs cancer, or chronic bronchitis pulmonary disease (COPD).

Abstract In the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death. Diagnosis and treatment can involve invasive procedures including coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The transfemoral artery approach remains the preferred method for coronary angiography and PCI in the United States despite a growing body of evidence that the use of the transradial approach (TRA) improves patient safety and efficiency. The purpose of this paper is to review the current literature, analyze several pertinent articles comparing cost and vascular complications of the two methods used for PCI, and to discuss the clinical implications of the TRA.

I picked heart disease for the leading cause of death. Heart disease is the number 1 cause of death from both the CDC and Medical News Today. Louisiana is the 5th highest heart disease death rate in the country. In 2010, there were 10,282 people in Louisiana died from heart disease (American Heart Association). In 2010, there were 514, 323 heart disease related deaths in the US (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). When comparing to the US 11.3% of adults will be diagnosed with heart disease, which is about 26.6 million adults (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). The parish in which I live in called Washington Parish is ranked number 15 of heart disease death rates in parishes of Louisiana. In Louisiana 25% of deaths will result
Cardiology Did you know about 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year

Cardiovascular disease and cancer are the first and second main reason of why some people in the United States are dying. Having daily consumption of fruits and vegetables will greatly help to reduce the risk of having these diseases such as stroke, Alzheimer disease, cataracts, and some of the functional problems associated with aging. Foods that contain important amounts pf bioactive components may give or provide good/need benefits and it gives significant roles in prevention of the chronic disease. (RuiHai Liu, 1993)
