The simple message is ‘Do not create more blockages. If you can reduce it, heart attack would never occur.’ It is like a bundle of notes being guarded by a rubber band. If you keep on putting more and more notes inside the rubber band one day the rubber band will break. This is the situation of a heart attack where the membrane also breaks off. Now if you stop putting more notes, the rubber band will never break. Further, if you start taking out one or two notes from the bundle every day, the rubber band will never break. The same principle applies in prevention of heart attack. By controlling all the risk factors of heart disease by adequate changes in the lifestyle can prevent heart attacks. The following are the expected parameters to prevent heart attacks:
