Heart Attack - Are you at risk?

Heart attack is number one killer of the modern times. It can strike people of any age. And now is proving deadly even for those in the early thirties. The incidence of heart disease has increased by 220% in last 20 years due to stressful life, wrong diet & lack of exercise.

Coronary Heart Disease:

The inside walls of the arteries are normally smooth. Starting from young age, over the years, these may become plugged up with deposits of fat and cholesterol. This process is known as atherosclerosis. As the fatty deposits, known as plaques, continue to build up, they narrow the arteries and reduce the flow of blood and oxygen supply to heart muscle. When this occurs person gets anginal chest pain on exertion or in severe cases even heart attack

Knowing and Controlling risk factors can reduce your risk up to 80%
