Heart disease remains one of the leading causes of death in the United States despite the massive amount of attention and resources that this has received. There are many different forms of heart disease such as atherosclerosis, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart disease. All of these can lead to a heart attack which is termed a myocardial infarction in the medical community. Because the heart is responsible for pumping blood and oxygen to the rest of the body, a heart attack could kill someone in a matter of minutes. One of the leading reasons why heart disease is still so common is because obesity is such an epidemic in the United States. With proper diet and exercise, people can reduce their risk of heart disease. All of this is discussed in this episode of "Behind the Scenes" with Laurence Fishburne.
