Heart disease is responsible for the most deaths worldwide for both men and women of all races. Coronary artery disease, a blockage of the arteries that supply blood to the heart, is the most common type of heart disease. About 600,000 people in the United States die from heart disease every year—that’s one in four deaths. Every year, 715,000 Americans have a heart attack. Fifteen percent of people who have a heart attack will die from it. Heart disease affects whites and African Americans the most, accounting for 24.3 and 24.1 percent of deaths, respectively. Asians and Pacific Islanders are at third-highest risk for a heart disease-related death, at 22.5 percent. It accounts for 20.8 percent of deaths in the Hispanic community, and 17.9 percent in American Indians and Alaska Natives.
