According to Usatoday, the most common disease in America is hypertension. Hypertension is a disease or disorder of abnormally high blood pressure. Hypertension happens when the force that is against the flow of blood is high beyond the expected range, this can be high enough to cause damage to other organs.

There are different diseases that people can become afflicted with, but the most common disease in America right now is Heart Disease. There are more than 600,000 people who get killed because of this disease every year. Heart disease is probably caused by the sedentary lifestyle that a lot of Americans live right now. Most of them stay in front of their computers the whole day.

They eat all of the easy food that they can get their hands on that are not usually very healthy. They also do not have enough time to exercise because they say that they are usually too tired when they get home. Most Americans also do not get enough sleep, and all of these things can lead to a weaker heart that will be more prone to diseases.
