I am 37 years old and just survived a heart attack in January 10. They had to put two stents in the anterior left artery of my heart (which stopped twice during the procedure)
My father had a quad bypass when he was 67. He didn't smoke or eat red meat, and drank moderately. I on the other hand smoked for 20 years, ate junk food and drank tonnes of beer. I was always physically active, but that didn't stop me from packing on the pounds the moement I turned 30.
This is where a combination of stupid choices got me.
This is what I have to say to you :
Don't smoke ...ever.
Eat and drink in moderation. Don't be a miserable hermit but don't overdo it either.
Be physically active .
Be HAPPY ...always...it just might save your life.
All the best. :)
