5 Ways Men Can Prevent Heart Attack

A Swedish study of over 20,000 men ages 45-79 found five “low risk behaviors” that can substancially reduce the risk of heart attack (myocardial infarction – MI). “Low-risk behavior included 5 factors:

  • a healthy diet
  • moderate alcohol consumption
  • no smoking
  • being physically active
  • having no abdominal adiposity (waist circumference less than 95 cm or 37 1/2”).”

Researchers note that “this combination of healthy behaviors, present in 1% of the men, could prevent 79% of the MI events on the basis of the study population.”
