Will you suffer a fatal heart attack?

What most people don’t know is that nearly half of those who die from heart attacks each year never showed prior symptoms of heart disease. Right now, millions of people over age 40 are suffering from heart disease and do not even know it.

Most people know by now that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in America. In fact, nearly one-third of all U.S. deaths result from heart disease.

That’s why world-renowned cardiologist, Chauncey W. Crandall M.D., F.A.C.C., has created the Simple Heart Test — a quick online test to help everyday people determine their own personal risk for heart disease.

Click here to determine your risk for free using Dr. Crandall’s Simple Heart Test.

Focusing on prevention, Dr. Crandall’s simple, two-minute test is dedicated to identifying telltale symptoms that oftentimes go completely unnoticed — until it’s too late. Of course, this doesn't substitute for regular medical check-ups or consulting with your physicians about your heart health.

If questioned carefully, many patients will recall some vague symptoms, such as indigestion or back pain that they blamed on something else at the time.

Other risk factors involve family history. A recent CNN Health report reveals that out of the 600,000 people who die from heart attacks each year, more than half have a family history of heart disease. Even if just one direct family member has a history of heart disease, it can increase risk by a whopping 33 percent.

According to Dr. Crandall, “…knowing your risk for heart disease gives you a powerful starting point to take action to prevent — or even reverse — this debilitating condition,” He urges, “Don’t be caught off guard. Know your risk now.”

Dr. Crandall’s simple heart test also provides instant results, giving patients the ability to take action right away. Discover your risk for heart attack – click here.

Through extensive humanitarian work in Third World countries such as Haiti, Angola, Colombia, and Bolivia, Dr. Crandall has published a number of research studies and clinical trials revealing the astonishing fact that cultures still exist in the world that have little or no heart disease.

He believes that through vigilance and prevention, heart disease shouldn’t have to exist anywhere at all.

Dr. Crandall practices interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology, and is head of the Cardiac Transplant Program at Florida's Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic.
