    I read there are physical body characteristics that show potential risk of heart attack and cardiac issues in men.

    being bald
    grey hair before age 29
    bulging eyes - bug eyes
    hairy chest
    barrel shaped chest-where lowest rib sticks out far.
    ear lobes with diagonal fold in it. Cleft lobes.
    being really tall over 6'4
    really red nail beds

    not to mention the things men do to make the situation worse.
    Smoking, drugs, obesity, poor diet/bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, inactivity/sedentary lifestyle, diabetes, heredity.icon_idea.gif

    Good reasons for adding cardio sports to your life.

    Stay fit be well all.

    I still need to see my doctor on this but the last few times I had my blood pressure checked it was pretty high. At first I thought it was the stress that I am currently under but then I found out that not only does my mom's side have high blood pressure but my dad's side does also.

    So I have hereditary and a cleft lobe on my right ear.

    is this a list of things men do? because how do you "do" high blood pressure, diabetes, and heredity?

    -meaning if they have these risk factors and do things to make their condition worse. Sorry wrote it after a 14 hour work day. You're nit picking, everyone else got the point.

    High blood pressure-doing nothing about destressing your life or getting zero cardio exercise.

    Diabetes-having it like my boss, who eats 6-8 dounuts a day, and smokes.

    Heredity-being aware you have risk factors, and taking steps to improve your health/ preventative care!

    heart attacks suck, which is why i watch my blood pressure, keep up on the cardio, and generally try to stay fit.
