Reduce your chance of heart attack by >80%

Low-risk behavior included 5 factors:

1.     a healthy diet (top quintile of Recommended Food Score)
2.     moderate alcohol consumption (10 to 30 g/day), no smoking
3.     being physically active (walking/bicycling ≥40 min/day and exercising ≥1 h/week)
4.     having no abdominal adiposity (waist circumference <95 cm)
"Following all five low-risk factors -- refraining from smoking, being physically active and having no abdominal adiposity, in addition to the other two -- was associated with a relative risk of 0.14 (95% CI: 0.04-0.43), wrote Agneta Åkesson, PhD, of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and her co-authors online in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology."
