Cardiovascular health is of vital importance… knowing your CAC score could save your life

Irish Heart Disease Awareness  has funded research for cardiac health and the importance of a Coronary Artery Calcium Scan.  The CAC scan is highly recommended by the American Heart Association and European organisations are catching up on the importance of this scan.  Knowing your CAC score is intrinsic to cardiovascular health and vitality.  See the documentary in the video below, with thanks to Irish Heart Desease Awareness and GAA teams involved.

“A documentary comparing the current cardiac (CAC scan of the arteries) scoring of the Down and Meath panels that faced off in the 1991 All-Ireland final has saved a number of lives.”
