Nearly 80 percent of heart attacks can be avoided if people take a few precautions and change their lifestyle. In a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, medical experts have shared that men can make a few changes in their lifestyle and prevent heart attacks.
The study suggests regular exercise, control over diet and weight, reducing alcohol and cigarette consumption as major steps to reduce heart attack risk. The study team also informed that only two percent of the Americans follow lifestyle which could be considered ideal for cardiovascular health.
Middle aged and older men are at higher risk of heart attack. More than 700,000 people suffer heart attack in the United States every year. Study lead author Agneta Akesson, an associate professor with the Institute of Environmental Medicine at Karolinska Institute in Solna, Sweden said that most of the heart attacks are preventable. The research team analyzed records of 20,700 men in Sweden in age group 45 and 79. The research team tracked the study subjects from 1997 till 2009.
Out of 22,700 men, eight percent (1,724 men) did not follow any of the five listed healthy behaviors. 166 out of 1,724 men suffered from heart attack over the course of study. 212 men among the study group individuals followed all the five good health practices. Only 3 of them suffered a heart attack.
Akesson added that men should change their lifestyle and they can live longer, without heart ailments. With a stronger heart and better quality of life, they can also reduce their risk of other chronic diseases.
