4 Simple Rules To Prevent Heart Attacks


Scientists based at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm looked back at information retrieved in questionnaires from more than 20,000 healthy men for just over a decade.

The researchers found strong links between the incidence of heart attack and five behavioral traits.

Results showed that the healthiest of all the participants were those who:

Ate a heart-healthy diet
Had small waistlines (maintained a healthy weight)
Did not smoke

Specifically, the healthiest men walked or cycled for at least 40 minutes a day. They also exercised at least one hour a week and had waist measurements below 37.5 inches.

The heart-healthy diets were high in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, reduced-fat dairy products, whole grains.
