The 2020 Heart Attack Prevention
Your Guide to Risk, Screening, and Precautions
If you’re like most people over age 50, avoiding a heart attack is probably one of your major health concerns—and understandably so. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Americans. As a result, you might think that heart attacks can be an inevitable part of growing older. But there’s nothing inevitable about them at all.
In fact, heart attacks are highly preventable. Regardless of your gender or age, you can dramatically reduce your chances of having a heart attack by incorporating into your everyday life the information you’ll find in the 2020 Heart Attack Prevention White Paper.
The death rate from heart attacks has been declining steadily for many years, in large part because people are receiving better medical care. Yet too many men and women are not taking the steps that could help protect them.
It’s easier than you may think. But you’d be amazed how many people ignore the No. 1 tool to use for preventing a heart attack:
Timely, accurate advice about WHAT WORKS
Simply put, you need to learn everything you can about how to slow the progress of cardiovascular disease. And then do everything that modern medicine recommends to reduce your heart attack risk factors.
Clearly, saving your heart starts with the facts. When you are serious about preventing a heart attack, knowledge can give you some of the best protection available.
You could try the library or the internet. But how will you know what’s current… what’s accurate… what’s even safe?
Sure, you could talk with a friend or relative who has a similar condition. But while social support is important, the choices you make should be based on solid, state-of-the-art scientific research.
As soon as you receive the 2020 Heart Attack Prevention White Paper, you will learn about:
Introducing Your Heart Attack Prevention Expert

He is on the national spokesperson panel for the American Heart Association (AHA). An accomplished writer, Dr. Blumenthal has co-authored more than 500 original research articles, state-of-the-art reviews, and editorials dealing with many aspects of cardiovascular risk assessment and atherosclerosis management.

He is the co-editor-in-chief of the textbook Preventive Cardiology: A Companion to Braunwald’s Heart Disease and the ASPC Manual of Preventive Cardiology. He was chair of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Committee on Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease for four years and is the dyslipidemia section editor for the ACC’s website.

In 2018, Dr. Blumenthal was awarded the Landon School’s Kupka Distinguished Alumnus Award, and in 2019 he was awarded the Arthur S. Agatston Award for outstanding contributions to preventive cardiology by the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
What really triggers a heart attack?
See who’s most likely to have a heart attack. You’ll learn the most common risk factors and how to minimize them. You’ll also learn the importance of primary prevention if you haven’t been diagnosed with coronary heart disease (CHD) or suffered a heart attack.
But this is only the beginning. Here is just a small sample of the topics we discuss:
Explore new technologies that are now available to assess the health of your coronary arteries. Find out how the tests are done and how they compare to traditional methods of predicting future heart attacks.
You will feel far better prepared to have an intelligent conversation with your doctor about the issues that concern you most.
How great is your risk?
You will take a close look at the different types of lipids. Understand cholesterol’s role in your body… the difference between “good” HDL and “bad” LDL cholesterol… why reducing cholesterol levels can help prevent coronary heart disease and heart attacks… how triglycerides differ from other lipids.
You will see how inflammation and high levels of C-reactive protein are associated with the risk of heart disease and heart attack. Examine the role of blood clots and coronary artery spasms in triggering heart attacks.
You will learn which risk factors (like age and family history) can’t be changed, although knowing about them can motivate you to take the preventive steps that can LOWER your risk of heart attack.
More important, you will learn which risk factors are within your control. You’ll be able to set clear, practical goals for yourself with guidance from medical specialists. And you’ll discover what to do if you have risk factors like high blood pressure, abdominal obesity or metabolic syndrome working against you.
Drug-free steps to take RIGHT NOW
The right lifestyle changes can go a long way toward bringing down high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. These simple changes may be enough to let you avoid medication altogether. But if not, making a few well-chosen adjustments in your habits can boost the effectiveness of the medications you take, perhaps even reducing the dosage you require.
What counts as “exercise”?
You’ve heard it before: regular exercise can raise “good” HDL cholesterol, help control your weight, improve the work capacity of your heart, reduce your blood pressure and blood glucose and relieve stress.
So why is it so difficult to get up off the couch and get moving?
You’ll learn how often to exercise. Whether short bursts of activity can offer the same protection as longer exercise periods when it comes to reducing the risk of coronary heart disease.
And you will find out how to exercise safely—a must-read if you are concerned about having a heart attack or cardiac arrest during physical activity.
“Alcohol to protect my heart? I’ll drink to that!”
Should you? Will drinking alcoholic beverages really lower your risk of heart attack, as the headlines proclaim? The 2020 Heart Attack Prevention White Paper looks at how a small amount of alcohol can help raise “good” HDL cholesterol. Discover what the research says is “enough” alcohol to reduce your risk of heart attack, and what’s “too much.”
