The culprit? Probably the massive increase in obesity and diabetes.
In short, younger and fatter Americans are falling victim to life-threatening heart attacks at a much higher rate.
How can you avoid becoming a part of the heart attack statistics? Do five things:
- Don’t smoke,
- maintain a good weight,
- good blood sugars,
- a good cholesterol profile (high HDL, low triglycerides)
- and a good blood pressure.
A low-carb diet can help you with all of it, except the smoking part.
