even if you were to have a weight problem (which isn't the case) but IF... heart attacks don't usually come about until you're at least over the hill. younger people having a heart attack is so rare it could almost be a myth. if you are still concerned you can take to a doc about warning signs of heart attacks. otherwise i think you still have a few decades before you need to start even thinking about it
