Heart disease continues to be one of the leading causes of death in Wyoming, as the state averages almost 1,000 deaths related to heart disease every year. Wyoming State Health Officer Dr. Wendy Braund says that understanding the heart's job can help us appreciate why certain choices can be so potentially harmful to our health.

Braund said a heart is about the size of a fist and is one of the hardest working muscles in the body and that the lifestyle choices we make every day can help or hurt our heart’s ability to do its job effectively.
