Artery Model - Plaque Buildup on Artery Walls in 4 Stages
Here is a way for individuals to see how plaque builds up on their artery walls over time, causing atherosclerosis. All of the saturated fat and trans fat they are eating will cause their arteries to clog over time.
Here is the definition of atherosclerosis from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
"Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart and other parts of your body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries. Atherosclerosis can lead to serious health problems like heart attack, stroke, or even death."
Many of the risk factors for atherosclerosis can be controlled and your educational instruction for a healthier diet, exercise, and smoking cessation are life-changing.
