ahh hardening of the arteries due to plaque build-up which leads to a restricted blood flow and put's extra stress on the heart to pump which leads to an increased risk of cardiac arrest.. but how the hell does the plaque get in there to begin with .. what's depositing it .. is it some sort of by product of redblood platelets carrying oxygen and nutrients?
