Really good work! Keep working hard!

Thank you for the correction .

Hey , Jared ,in the first sentence , Why use includes rather than including

Both are perfectly fine 🙂

Caused by disease in heart or blood vessel, cardiovascular disease includes coronary heart disease (heart attack), cerebrovascular disease (stroke), rising blood pressure (high blood pressure), peripheral arterial vascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease and heart failure. Main causes of the cardiovascular disease are the use of tobacco, lack of physical exercises and unhealthy diet.

Caused by disease in the heart or blood vessels, cardiovascular disease includes coronary heart disease (heart attack), cerebrovascular disease (stroke), hypertension (high blood pressure), peripheral arterial disease, rheumatic heart disease, congenital heart disease and heart failure. The main causes of cardiovascular disease are the use of tobacco, lack of physical exercises and unhealthy diet.

Notes: You can’t say “rising blood pressure” here as this just means that a person’s blood pressure is rising (the person could have low blood pressure but it still may be rising). Great work though!!!
