A heart attack can strike anyone and did not know the age. A lot of people who have lost loved ones due to a sudden heart attack. Even as happened recently, football players can be affected by sudden heart attack on the pitch, and lead to death. Many factors could cause it to happen.
Heart attack posed by buildup of unhealthy foods. “Sudden death due to heart attack is closely related to the consumption of foods that are full of fat and sugar,” said Dr John F Knight in his book entitled “Family Medical Care”. Dr Knight explained that the heart works like a pump to drain the blood through the lungs throughout the entire body. Nevertheless, the heart can work while the blood supply is still there. “Through the cardiac or coronary, blood flow throughout the body. If the walls of blood vessels constrict, so that blood flow can no longer afford to taste, then there was a heart attack,” he explained.
Constriction of blood vessel walls because of substances contained in the blood, gradually settle to the intimate layer. “The inside of the artery vessels are like pipes of water used for years and have been precipitated salt, dirt and other substances in it. As a result, water flowing is smaller and the pressure is too high,” he continued.
The blood vessels become narrow due to fatty-fat on the walls. Fat attached to it called lipids. Lipids divided into two, the first is called cholesterol, and the second is a triglyceride. In addition, the attacks can occur suddenly. There may be blockage of blood vessels into the main part of the heart muscle. If a blockage occurs in the main blood vessel, the victim could be killed instantly.
The attack can also cause blood clots, or thrombus that the longer bloated, and clog the blood vessels to the heart. If this happens in the brain of the person, will have a stroke, and if the blood vessel wall ruptures, bleeding occurs which causes death. Therefore, beware of a heart attack because it can cause sudden death.
