Understanding Heart Attack Risk Factors

A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked. This can damage or destroy heart tissue, leading to serious health problems. While some risk factors are uncontrollable, like family history, many can be addressed through lifestyle changes. Here are some key factors to be aware of:  

  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Unhealthy Diet
  • Lack of Exercise
  • Chronic Stress
