Men’s silent killer

 I read once of a man who died while getting laid. Imagine while ubusy zikhipha ebhedini and all of a sudden your heart stops beating. Cabanga the embarrassment, especially if you were to survive it. You wouldn’t want that to happen to you, would you?

 

Without a warning, without a sign, without a wave of respect heart attacks are a silent killer. According to Richard Williams a Medical Professor 26% of men are at risk of dying from a heart attack.

 

Signs and symptoms

 

Zibhaye isigns that one may have before getting a heart attack. These include but are not limited to:

·         Pain in the left side and upper chest
·         Left arm, into the back up to the jaw or down into the abdomen
·         Shortness of breath
·         Light headedness
·         Shortness of breath
·         Nausea
·         Vomiting
·         Fainting

 

So what should you do to minimize the chances of this ruthless disease affecting you?

·         Well I know most of us abodaki hate ushaya ipush ups. They say one must run or exercise for 30 minutes per day; blah, blah, blah and thina abanye as’kthandi ukubaleka, chasing the wind for 30 minutes every day. But the fact is, we have to! Otherwise sizofa sibancinci. You’re not chasing wind but better health.

·         Reducing one’s oil and carbohydrate intake also minimizes the risks.

·         Phuza amnzi, it’s vital to drink at least eight glasses of water each day.

·         Eating healthy is also important. That is, in every meal you have make sure that there are various colours. Ukutya okunesondlo ne fruit.  

·         Maintain an average weight.  Obesity increases the chances of getting a heart attack. Subasisdudla esilazy, get up and get that weight under control.

 

Living a healthy lifestyle reduces your chances of suffering from a heart attack by more than 80% said Richard Williams.
