Heart Attack - Washington Tracking Network (WTN)

Why should I be concerned about heart attacks?

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.

Air pollution is one of many factors that impacts heart health. Exposure to fine particle pollution contributes to cardiovascular disease and death. People who breath in higher levels of fine particle pollution over a long time have more heart problems, like heart attacks, than people who breath in less of this kind of pollution.
