Cholesterol does NOT cause coronary herat disease. The PRIMARY literature does NOT support the Cholesterol Theory


http://eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/reprint/18/1/18.pdf



Things that DO CAUSE CHD?

Severe stress

elevated FASTING blood SUGAR

elevated blood rpessure elevated homocysteine

POOR NITRIC OXIDE levels in the arteries

complete lack of physical activity


Fortnum
Lots:

Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Hyperliperdemia (high cholesterol)
Smoking
Family History
Diabetes melitus (particularly if badly controlled)
Being male
Being overweight
Being inactive
Diet high in saturated fat, low in fruit, vegetables and fibre

All the usual suspects, basically.

So is too much water retention.

Keep in mind the heart is a muscle, so a sedentary lifestyle is bad for the heart. Regular exercise is excellent.

Drugs like cocaine, lack of exercise, stress, smoking cigarettes, not enough vitamins.


Dr Frank
Smoking is an absolute disaster! Also taking no exercise puts you at risk of dying 14 years earlier than if you take 30 minutes of vigorous exercise 5 days a week. Diabetes and hypertension also dramatically increase your cardiac risks.

Smoking, drinking alcohol, not drinking enough water, not exercising your heart and lungs daily, not managing stress, depression and drug-use.
It takes effort to look after your heart, but if you neglect it, it will fail you!


Rich Z
Lack of exercise should be on that list too.

High blood pressure, poorly-controlled diabetes, not exercising enough, having a stressful lifestyle, smoking, illegal drugs and having a family history of heart problems. And probably many more besides!
