This disease causes your heart to swell like a balloon. 15 Poor oral health increases heart disease risk. Studies suggests that oral bacterium causes cardiovascular disease when it colonizes and invades the endothelial cells that line the inner tissues of the aorta. 16 Chronic stress does inc
rease heart attack risk. Increased stress hormones will put a toll on your body and heart, causing heart attacks, strokes, depression, etc. 17 Heartsease is a European pansy that has purple and yellow flowers. 18 There are between 130-160 words in the English dictionary that have the word heart in them. 19 Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women. 20 The first heart pacemakers were allegedly plugged into a wall socket.
