How to prevent heart attacks?
Penn Medicine added: “Of course, it’s always a good idea to take steps toward preventing a heart attack in the first place.
“While some risk factors cannot be controlled — age and family history of heart disease, for instance — others are manageable.
“Staying on top of other health issues — such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes — can go a long way toward lowering your risk of heart attack.
And many lifestyle changes to prevent heart attack are quick enough that they can be worked into your everyday routine.
“These include working on healthier eating habits — it’s all about fruits, veggies and lean proteins, incorporating more activity into your day, such as walking or taking the stairs, keeping your stress levels in check by doing a few minutes of deep breathing, limiting alcohol and quitting smoking.”
