The number of deaths from heart attacks is not less than the number of normal deaths around the world. On the contrary, the average is too much. There could be many reasons for this. Many other diseases can lead to heart attacks. However, research says that men are at most risk in this case.   

According to US Researchers, women are less likely to have a 2nd heart attack than men. The study was done on 1.4 million people from 2008 to 2017, showing that “the surviving female patients from death risk is relatively low”.

It has been found that within 12 months of recovering from the first heart attack, the follow-up heart attack has been reduced from 89.2% to 72.3% for every 1,000 women – where the follow-up heart attack has been reduced from 94.2% to 81.3% for male patients. 

London-based physician San Peters thinks that a second heart attack can be prevented if the patient follows the doctor’s instructions properly. “Men and women can have a heart attack at any time. More analysis is needed to know about this. This research will help to understand this better,” she said regarding the study.

Physicians call a heart attack a Medicosis Myocardial Infarction. The heart has two blood vessels. One is the right coronary artery and the other is the left coronary artery. If fat accumulates in these blood vessels for any reason, it is called plaque or block. If blood clots form on that block, it becomes a complete block. The condition occurs only when it is 100 percent blocked, resulting in chest pain or sudden death. This is called a heart attack.

People who smoke or have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol levels in the body or those in the family who have heart problems – are more likely to have a heart attack. Obesity and unhealthy eating habits also cause more heart problems due to vascular blockage.
