All About Heart Disease
FACTS: Heart disease is by far the leading cause of death in much of the world. Over 500 million suffer from cardiovascular disease, which includes heart attacks, stroke, and other types of heart disease. One in three people dies from these diseases, taking more lives than cancer, flu, pneumonia, and accidents combined. Still, heart health has been a huge success story for modern medicine. Since 1950, the death rate from heart disease has dropped from about 600 to under 200 per 100,000 people in the USA. Even with the improvements in prevention and treatments, we are more likely to die from heart disease today than 100 years ago, largely because other things used to kill us first.
The heart muscle needs a constant flow of blood supplied by the coronary arteries. Any restriction in this supply means oxygen and nutrients cannot reach the muscle. During a heart attack or myocardial infarction, the heart muscle is suddenly cut off from blood flow. This starves an area of the heart causing tissue death. A heart attack can cause severe chest pain, sweating, shortness of breath, and loss of consciousness. Women and men experience heart attacks differently. Women are more likely to have abdominal pain and nausea, and more likely to have heart problems misdiagnosed. The key to treatment for any heart attack is speed to remove the blockage.
Other types of heart disease include atherosclerosis, angina, abnormal heart rhythms, congestive heart failure, heart muscle disorders, and valve disorders. Atherosclerosis is the narrowing and stiffening of arteries due to the buildup of cholesterol in the blood. When this occurs in the coronary arteries it can lead to a heart attack or angina, which are chest pains indicating the heart is not receiving enough blood. Heart attacks differ from cardiac arrest when the heart stops pumping often due to a failure in electrical signaling. A heart attack often leads to cardiac arrest, but you can suffer a cardiac arrest for other reasons.
Factors that contribute to heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, drinking alcohol, obesity, an inactive lifestyle, and genetics. Yet many heart attacks occur in people who are fit and healthy with no obvious risks. Living a virtuous life helps improve your chances of escaping heart disease, but there are no guarantees. Preventing heart disease should be a way of life – eat a healthy diet, live mindfully, exercise, and learn the facts about the heart.

The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
KnickKnack Toy Shack has the best items available at great prices! The customer service outstanding! The tiny Barbie Case is exactly like the original in the 80s! Highly recommended! God Bless & Stay Safe! :))
I am satisfied with my purchase. However, after only a couple days of use, the batteries are beginning to fade. I'd like to know how to replace the batteries, and Westminster has yet to reply to my request.
Can you speak to them, and prompt a reply to me?
Absolutely love these!!! I collect minis and wacky packages was hoping they would make mini packs with cards/stickers!!! Can’t find them here 😔 so very happy you have them!! Thank you to a great seller!!!!!
For nearly 50 years I’ve collected cards. Almost as long I’ve collected miniatures. These are two favorite collectibles in one for me. If they produce miniature packs of Kiss cards, that may be an overload. Always top notch service!
This miniature is fantastic, I had a full size example as a kid and loved it. This brought back a fond time for me. Thank you!!
