In my last article (which you can read here), I told you about heart disease. Today’s Monday Muscle Injury Prevention is about coronary heart disease, which is the most common type of heart disease. Coronary heart disease is caused by the buildup of plaque in the arteries. This plaque buildup can cause the arteries to harden or narrow. The plaque that builds up in the arteries is made up of fat and cholesterol. When the plaque builds up, it causes a decrease of blood flow which can eventually lead to a heart attack.

Injury Prevention – Here are a few tips to prevent coronary heart disease:

1. Learn how to manage stress. Managing stress will not only help to improve your physical health, but will also help to improve your emotional health. Learn how to deal with problems and situations in a healthy way and find a way to relax more.

2. Maintain a healthy diet. A diet that is low in saturated fats, salt and sugar can help reduce your risk for coronary heart disease. A diet high in fiber and healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acids will also help reduce your risk for coronary heart disease.

3. Maintain a healthy weight. The best way to maintain a healthy weight is to eat a healthy diet and stay physically active. An unhealthy amount of extra weight makes your heart and the rest of your organs have to work harder. Think about how YOU feel when you are overworked….

Is it possible to get heart cancer?

Heart cancer is extremely rare because the cells of the heart stop dividing early in life.

The heart is susceptible to different types of diseases. Some of the common cardiovascular conditions include hypertensive heart disease, ischemic heart disease and inflammatory heart disease. Types of hypertensive heart disease include aneurysms, high blood pressure (also known as hypertension) and peripheral arterial disease. Types of ischemic heart disease include angina, coronary heart disease and heart attack. Types of inflammatory heart disease include cardiomyopathy, pericardial disease and valvular heart disease.

Injury Prevention – Here are a few tips to reduce your risk of heart disease:

1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco products. If you do smoke, make a strong effort to quit. Smoking and using tobacco is detrimental to your heart because they cause harsh chemicals to damage blood vessels and arteries.

2. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week can help you avoid conditions that put strain on your heart, especially extra weight. Carrying extra weight makes your heart work harder and is usually a result of diabetes and high blood pressure.

3. Eat a healthy diet. Try to eat a healthy, well balanced diet. Your diet should be rich in vegetables, fruits and lean proteins. Also watch the amount of fats, sodium and alcohol you consume.
