Unfortunately, there are some things that are out of your control that make you more prone to heart attacks. If a parent has heart disease, their children are more likely to have it.
African Americans are at greater risk for heart attacks than white people as they have more severe high blood pressure. Due to higher rates of obesity and diabetes in Mexican Americans, American Indians, native Hawaiians, and some Asian Americans, these races are also at greater risk for heart disease.
Since these are factors that are out of your control, it’s important to be conscious of your predisposition for diseases and work in other ways to prevent them from developing.
