Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries,

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

  • High blood pressure: affecting approximately 1 in 3 adults in the United States with only about half having it under control
  • High cholesterol
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Unhealthy diet with high salt intake that increases the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. About 90% of American adults exceed their daily recommendation for sodium intake.
  • Physical inactivity
  • Obesity

Over time, these risk factors cause changes in the heart and blood vessels that can lead to heart attacks, heart failure, and strokes. The risk of Americans developing and dying from cardiovascular disease would be substantially reduced if major improvements were made in diet and physical activity, control of high blood pressure and cholesterol, cessation of smoking, and appropriate aspirin use. The cardiovascular health and quality of life of Americans could thus be improved through prevention, detection, and treatment of heart attack and stroke risk factors; early identification and treatment of heart attacks and strokes; and further prevention of repeat cardiovascular events.
