Several studies have found evidence of a genetic contribution to coronary heart disease and heart attack. Knowing your genetic risk of heart attack can help you assess your overall risk, which is the first step in planning your preventive and heart-healthy lifestyle. Remember, that studies have shown that your lifestyle is your best defense against coronary heart disease and heart attack.

No doubt it will enhance the possibility of heart attack but it is not the only reason for this ailment. One should live a healthy life style and do yoga for a happy living.

Hereditary is a disputed theory. We invite all the ailments we never care our health.But we maintain our cars in good condition but not our precious body .Health is our right and health management is our responsibility.
