The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a sobering study on heart disease.
It found that nearly 800,000 people die from cardiovascular disease each year.
But it also found nearly a quarter of those deaths, or 200,000 of them, could be prevented through lifestyle changes.
The director of the CDC says as the Affordable Care Act comes into effect, he anticipates more people will be able to access preventive care.
