If any one of your family members suffers from a heart attack, does it increase the likelihood that the other members of the family will have the same disease?
The facts are that if your dad or brother had a heart attack before age 55, or if your mom had one before age 65, you’re more likely to develop heart disease. This does not mean you will have a heart attack. It means you should take good care of your heart to keep it healthy.
It has been found that if either of the parents has experienced a heart attack, then their children may develop heart disease too. This is more likely in the case of those whose brother or father suffered a heart attack before fifty five years of age and if the mother has experienced a heart attack before the age of sixty five years.
Does aspirin prevent the heart attack?
Yes, it is true that aspirin can help fight heart attack, but not in all cases. But there are also side effects of consuming aspirin.
If you are considering taking aspirin to aid in the prevention of heart attack consult your doctor first. You can take the aspirin according to the doctor’s prescription once he has said it’s ok for you.
