In the face of a heart attack, time lost is muscle lost. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the symptoms so you can act quickly if you suffer a cardiac event.

What Are My Risks?
Factors that contribute to the chances of developing heart disease fall into two categories: uncontrollable and controllable risk factors. Uncontrollable risk factors include age, gender, race, and family history. Controllable risk factors are generally lifestyle choices, such as smoking, poor diet, obesity, stress, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
Remember: heart disease and heart attack are not inevitable conditions - they're both treatable and preventable. Talk with your physician about identifying your risk factors and determining the lifestyle changes that will work best for you.
