Poor Diet

A diet that is packaged, is a heterogenous mixture of cooked and uncooked food, fruits and milk can cause the liver and the heart to get stressed. Therefore, It is important to have a healthy diet to have efficient organ functioning.


Unhealthy lifestyle that includes lack of physical activity, unhealthy food habits cause the body mass to be in excess of what is required for a healthy body. Such lifestyles begin early in childhood due to unregulated access to food and snacks in addition to addiction to gadgets, television and video games.

Obesity is also common amongst adults. The cause is physical inactivity and unregulated lifestyle and food habits. An unhealthy lifestyle can also cause several other symptoms such as diabetes which can lead to a heart attack.


Psychological stress that results from family and work situations can be a cause for a unwanted heart condition. Such stress does not lead to a heart condition in one day!

The accumulated emotional and psychological stress overtime leads to heart attack.
