Heart Attack

A heart attack occurs when an artery becomes blocked.

It prevents oxygen and nutrients from getting to the heart.

This affects the state of the heart if the blood and nutrient flow is not restored.

Heart disease is a disorder of the blood vessels.

A waxy substance called plaque builds up in the coronary (heart) arteries.

This condition is called atherosclerosis and can lead to a heart attack.

Causes of Heart Disease
Smoking
Smoking is a major risk factor for heart disease in men.
It is probably the most significant risk factor in women, because it reduces a woman’s two best protectors, estrogen and HDL.
For every cigarette smoked the risk of heart attack rises.
Studies in research has shown that smoking increases the chances of a heart attack in geometrical proportions.

Obesity
It is common knowledge that obesity and heart disease go hand in hand in men.
Being mildly overweight can increase heart attack risk, perhaps more than in men.
 
Obesity increases risk to heart attack
 
Diabetes
A higher percentage of women than men have diabetes.
In both sexes, high blood sugar speeds up hardening of the arteries.
Hence, diabetes is a risk factor for the development of heart disease.
Stress
As more women have joined the labour market, they experience more health challenges due to stress.
Researchers have wondered if the stress of working would harm their hearts.
Female clerical workers have a higher rate of heart attack than homemakers.
 
 
Regular medical check up is necessary
