According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, every 40 seconds someone in the United States experiences a heart attack. About 1 in 5 of these heart attacks is silent – doing damage without the person knowing it.
You may be at risk of heart disease if you:
- Have high blood pressure
- Have high blood cholesterol
- Are a smoker
Survey says, almost half of Americans (about 47%) have at least one of these three risk factors.
Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can increase a person’s chances of experiencing a heart attack. These include,
- Unhealthy diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Excessive alcohol consumption
It’s better to be always prepared to help not only your loved ones who are at high risk but also strangers who you come across that may need your assistance.
