Lifestyle and diet. An inactive person tends to gain weight. Added weight means more work for the heart to supply the excess areas of tissue and skin with blood. Even with regular excercise, diet plays an important role as well. A diet high in fat and cholesterol can lead to clogged arteries, which again, makes it harder for the heart to pump blood through these arteries and vessels and causes the heart to go on strike.
