Healthy Lifestyle May Cut the Genetic Risk of Heart Attack
Scientists in the new research show that people with genetic predisposition for heart attack can minimize the risk by leading a healthy lifestyle – exercising, eating healthy, staying slim, and quitting smoking. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Dr. Sekar Kathiresan, a director of the Center for Human Genetic Research at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, believes that even with a little effort in these areas people can cut their high genetic risk of heart disease by more than half.
The scientist says: “For heart attack at least, DNA is not destiny. You have control over your risk for heart attack, even if you’ve been dealt a bad hand.”
