Statistically, as we reach middle age and beyond, our risk of heart disease increases dramatically.
It is in fact the leading cause of death in most Western countries, particularly the United States, Britain and Australia.
For men, the risk of a heart attack increases greatly after the age of 45 and for women, after the age of 50. The average age for the first heart attack in men is 64 and for women is 70.
Clearly, there are many, many factors that come into play, and your doctor is the first person that you should turn to for advice.
But diet is one of those factors. Obesity, eating too much of the wrong kinds of food and a large sugar intake all contribute to an increased danger of heart attack.
