Atherosclerosis Hardening of the Arteries
Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, occurs when the inside walls of an artery become thicker and less elastic. The thickening reduces the area available for blood flow. Although atherosclerosis reveals few symptoms at first, the damaged artery eventually cannot carry enough blood to supply the necessary amount of oxygen. The result is often a stroke or heart attack. About 1 million people die as a result of atherosclerosis each year in the United States.
