Do you know your numbers? Keeping track of vital stats like your blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels can save your life. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States with about 600,000 people dying from it every year—that’s one in four deaths.

Moderated by Steve Incontrera from, this Google+ Hangout will feature a panel of experts from Baylor Health Care System and the American Heart Association to discuss common myths and misconceptions about heart disease related to these three statistics.

If heart disease runs in your family, is there really anything you can do about it? Can medication alone reduce your cholesterol? Are the symptoms for a heart attack the same in men and women?
