Autoimmune Disease effects 50 million Americans, 75% of which are women. It is one of the top ten leading causes of death for women and female children. There are over 80 diseases caused by the autoimmune system attacking cells, tissues, and organs. Because of it’s prevailing incidence, HealthLink Initiative has decided to focus on this issue with providing research and tools. We are focusing our articles on ways to prevent or fight autoimmune disease. We are also starting an online resource for products designed to assist with systemic inflammation. These will be vetted by doctors associated with HLI and who have a passion for fighting back against autoimmune.
The November Heart Healthy Weekend was also a tremendous success. We truly made a difference in people’s lives.
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. It is indiscriminate of age, sex or race. Over 25% of all deaths will be due to heart disease. In 2011 it cost the USA over $444 billion.
