Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. While many types of heart disease exist, the most common type is coronary artery disease, which occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become hardened and narrowed. Other kinds of heart disease involve valves in the heart or heart failure.
