Heart Heath By:Sebastien Roberts Risk factors We can control The Effects Risk Factors How to prevent Arthercsclerosis from happening What is it ? Where is Artherosclerosis found most in the world ? Artherosclerosis How do you control risk factors Why is it found in some countries more than others THE END!!!! What Alcohol Really does
(extra information) Diseases alcohol can give you What alcohol does to your heart Atherosclerosis (also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD) it is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood.
Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your arteries limiting the flow of oxygen-rich blood.
This can lead to heart attack and stroke or even death. Lack of Exercise
Unhealthy diet
Family History Lack of Excercise
Unhealthy diet
What problems the risk factors cause Lack of Excercise:
A lack of exercise can worsen other risk factors for atherosclerosis, such as unhealthy blood and cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, diabetes.
Unhealthy diet:
An unhealthy diet can raise your risk of atherosclerosis. Foods that are high in trans fats, cholesterol, sodium (salt), and sugar can worsen other atherosclerosis risk factors.
As you get older, your risk of atherosclerosis increases. Genetic or lifestyle factors cause plaque to build in your arteries as you age. By the time you're middle-aged or older, enough plaque has built up to cause signs or symptoms. In men, the risk increases after 45. In women, the risk increases after 55.
Family History
If someone in your family has had heart disease, your risk of atherosclerosis increases. If your father or a brother had heart disease before age 55, or if your mother or a sister had heart disease before age 65 then you are at risk because of your genetics. If you want to control the risk factors of artherosclerosis you want to have a healthy diet and excercise at least 30 min everyday. To prevent from getting atherosclerosis, try to live as healthy as you can. If it's a family history there isn't much you can do about it. But if you smoke or if you have high blood presure, these factors can put you a risk.
When alcohol enters the body, it eventually reaches the bloodstream where it circulates through all the organs of the body, including the heart. This may be why heavy alcohol drinking can cause alcoholic cardiomyopathy, a disorder that causes the heart to become enlarged or thickened. This reduces the heart's ability to pump blood to the rest of the body. Alcohol can give you cardiomyopathy, a disease that enlarges your heart and makes it harder for your heart to pump blood to the rest of your body. You don't get a heart attack or a stroke from this disease but you will or can die. Artherosclerosis is most found in Poland. Of couse readings change so the numbers vary so it's not always the same country for too long. But when I checked, it was Poland. In Poland 29,511 people die because of Artherosclerosis. I think it's because of pollution and toxic chemicals. All that stuff is being released into the air and when we breath all the toxic chemicals, pollution gets in our bodies. Some places have less pollution than others therefore more people get effected than others Quick Fact 7,824 people in Egypt have died becuase of Arthsclerosis. Egypt is #6 on the leaderboard
