Men can greatly reduce risk of heart attack with healthy lifestyle
Men can greatly reduce risk of heart attack with healthy lifestyle (September 24, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Sweden - A new report published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology finds that men can greatly reduce their risk of heart attack by making healthy lifestyle choices. Researchers studied over 20,000 healthy men between the ages of 45 and 79 years. Participants were followed for 11 years. Results showed that having a healthy lifestyle--including maintaining a healthy weight and diet, exercising, not smoking and consuming only moderate levels of alcohol--could potentially prevent 4 out of five coronary events. Just having a low-risk diet and moderate alcohol consumption lowered heart attack risk by 35%, while having a low risk diet, moderate alcohol consumption, not smoking and being physically active lowered risk by 86%.
