What is heart attack?

By definition, a heart attack occurs when a section of heart muscle does not receive blood flow due to the artery blockage. The blood flow if not restored within minutes, the heart muscle becomes damaged from lack of oxygen and begins to die.

What are heart attack causes?

Plaque buildup in coronary artery is the cause for most cases of heart attacks. Heart attack also can occur due to microvascular disease and a severe spasm of a coronary artery resulting sometimes from taking some drugs, emotional stress or pain, exposure to extreme cold, and cigarette smoking.

What are the risk factors?

The adjustable major risk factors for heart attack include smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, and diabetes.

Risk factors that you can do nothing about include age and family history of early cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Colin T Campbell, a distingished nutrition professor at Cornell University, reports in his Book titled China Study that more than 70 percent young soldiers who died in the Korean War suffered some degree of plaque builup in their arteries which he believes results from unhealthy diet with too much meat and processed food!

Heart attack symptoms

Not every heart attack victims experience the same signs or symptoms. Many cases start slowly as mild pain or discomfort. Some people do not have any symptoms at all.

Angina (pain in the chest) is something people need to watch out. Other signs include upper body discomfort in one or two arms, the back, neck jaw or stomach, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness or fainting or breaking out in a cold sweat.

How to prevent heart attack.

Following a low-fat diet rich in fruits and vegetables are proved to be effective in reversing artery plaque buildup. Interested readers should try Ornish diet. Methods that may also help include losing weight if you're overweight or obese, quitting smoking and doing physical activity to improve heart health. Dr. Ornish proved that the efficacy is almost 100%.
