Cardiovascular Diseases and Disorders

Cardiovascular, a fusion of "cardio" (heart) and "vascular" (blood vessels), pertains to diseases impacting these systems. This ailment has evolved significantly. Atherosclerosis, plaque buildup in arteries obstructing blood flow, causes inadequate circulation to vital organs, spawning various cardiovascular conditions, potentially fatal. Risk factors including age, genetics, high blood pressure, tobacco, inactivity, poor diet, obesity, and depression contribute to its onset.
