Heart Attacks Early Warning Symptoms

Heart disease is an assassin he would be the highest paid in terms of the number of people it has killed. Crowned as the number one killer in America, the heart disease can also be easily averted if a body is well taken care of. A healthy heart can give its owner no worries. Some restrictions can easily avert a heart disease from happening.

Staying away from fast food and junk food as well as greasy, high cholesterol laden foods can greatly decrease the risk of having a heart disease. Not only that, they can also prevent other diseases from happening. Fast foods are processed foods that have various harmful chemicals that contribute greatly to the development of a heart disease.

Then there is smoking. Not only does smoking contribute highly to a good number of diseases, they are actually one of the highest contributors. Stopping smoking now gives your heart the chance to recoup whatever lost health it has given up.

It doesn't matter how long you have been hooked to smoking cigarettes and cigars, if you love yourself and your family, you have to give it up. It's never late to give your health and your heart a chance to improve.

Another obvious prevention is to exercise. Give the old ticker a workout. Keeping your body in shape can eliminate the fats deposited in it clearing up the passageway of your blood. Not only would you be preventing the heart disease you could also improve the way you feel and the way you look.

You can do a variety of exercises that can fit in your schedule. An hour or two a day or even a couple of minutes can vastly improve your health. Talk to a trainer or a doctor; check out which ones you could do comfortably. You have only yourself to blame if you don't act now.

Here is the Comparison Between the US & Africa

Cardiomyopathy is a rare heart muscle disease over the world, but not in Africa where it is one of the major causes of heart failure, according to experts that reviewed all available cardiomyopathy studies performed in Africa, along with all the information about the causes and types of heart muscle disease in Africa, where 10 per cent of the world's population lives.

A 10 per cent to 17 per cent of cardiac problems found through autopsies in South Africa and Uganda, and 17 per cent to 48 per cent of heart failure diagnoses in many parts of Africa are due to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), which is an enlargement of the entire heart, explain researchers.

In the United States, 4 to 8 per 100,000 people are affected by DCM, but African overall incidence is unknown, because the corresponding studies have not been made yet.
Researchers' findings show that Peripartum cardiomyopathy has a very high incidence throughout Africa and Nigeria.

This illness can cause heart failure and it develops between the last month of pregnancy and the first five months after childbirth. Peripartum cardiomyopathy incidence in the US is 1 in 15,000 deliveries; meanwhile the incidence in South Africa is 1 in 1,000 cases.

DCM is caused by various factors, under generally accepted African theory.

These include untreated high blood pressure,
infective and toxic agents
inappropriate immunologic reactions,
nutritional deficiencies,
and genetic factors.

According to experts, it is important to do more research to understand the underlying reasons for Africa's high cardiomyopathy rate, and prevent or reduce it.
