Risk Factors and Prevention

Certain risk factors increase your chances of developing cardiovascular disease — especially coronary artery disease, the most common type. Blockages in coronary arteries can lead to angina, heart attack and death. Some of these factors cannot be controlled, such as heredity, age and gender. But most risk factors for heart disease can be controlled — often with measures as simple as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including proper diet and participating in a regular fitness program.
