OK Guys, I've spoken to the doc and he says 10-15 of you will have a heart attack in the next 10 years. Could I just ask that it's not all the tenors? 

What's My REAL Chance of Having a Heart Attack?

Within cardiology terminology, we define the risk of a coronary artery event as “low”, “intermediate” or “high”. A low risk is considered a less than 10 percent chance of a coronary event within 10 years. A high risk is considered a greater than 20 percent chance of an event within 10 years. An intermediate risk is between 10 and 20 percent risk of an event within 10 years.
This means that, if we were to take a group of 100 people who were high-risk and follow them for 10 years, 20 or more of those people would have a coronary event or symptom.

But you still don't know precisely which group your in!


  When it comes to the heart, being aware of your blood pressure and keeping it down, being aware of your cholesterol and dealing with it appropriately, undertaking regular exercise, not smoking and addressing other cardiovascular risks are all important for a safe journey through life.

However, on their own, they offer no guarantee of avoiding a heart attack, although they are likely to reduce the risk
