Swedish Study Finds Healthy Lifestyle Significantly Reduces Heart Attack Risk
A new study could help men avoid heart attacks by simply changing a few daily behaviors. This study followed men in the middle-aged range and older and found that men in this group reduced their risk for heart attack significantly by living a moderate lifestyle focused on healthy choices. Basically, men who drink only moderately, do not smoke cigarettes, eat a proper diet, exercise regularly, and maintain a healthy weight fare better as far as heart conditions go. As a matter of fact the study suggests that these men are 86 percent less likely to have a heart attack than those who do not live that kind of lifestyle. Unfortunately only 1 percent of men satisfy all of those lifestyle markers.
