TOP 10 WAYS TO AVOID A HEART ATTACK
1.0. You really are what you eat. If you dine on a steady flow of burgers, French fries, eggs, etc. your heart is not
going to be in the best condition. Adopting a heart-healthy diet is the most important step you can do to
benefit your heart.
2.0 Know your Family Medical History. Some people have genetic predispositions to certain illnesses – heart
disease is no exception. If your father or mother died from a heart attack at the age of 50, then chances are
you may be headed down the same road.
3.0 Undergo Preventive Screenings – Preventive health screenings can give you and your doctor a lot of
information about how at risk you are for cardiovascular disease.
4.0. This is a no-brainer – STOP SMOKING. Every smoker on the planet knows that it’s not good for them.
5.0 Chill out! Stress can actually have some pretty severe effects on your body. Research scientists in Canada
performed a study and found that people who had heart attacks and returned to a stressful situation were
twice as likely to have a second attack.
6.0 If your blood pressure is too high, your risk of heart disease goes up. A healthy diet & exercise can help. Your
doctor may also prescribe medication to lower your levels.
7.0.Be smart about cholesterol. If you do not know your cholesterol level, ask your doctor for a blood test.
8.0 In 1998, FDA advised people that have already had a heart attack to begin taking an aspirin a day to help
prevent another one. The American heart Association suggests a daily low dose of aspirin to help prevent a
first and second heart attack.
9.0.Sleep-doctors suggest about 8 hours of sleep per night. Research shows that too little or too much sleep
can have some poor effects on your blood pressure and heart.
10. Exercise! When you lift weights, your muscles get stronger and healthier. Your heart is a muscle so the same thing
holds true for it. Doctors recommend 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least 3 or more times a week.
