Heart disease is a silent killer, very often with no symptoms until the critical stage.
A silent heart attack is also commonly dismissed as an anxiety attack.
More than half of the people who die of heart disease have not had any symptoms.1
Contrary to popular belief, heart disease can happen to anyone, including a young and fit person.
