A heart attack is referred to damaged heart muscles and is a result of a improper flow of blood. In most cases, a blood clot is formed in the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscles and the flow is blocked. Consequently, the heart begins to malfunction.
In the modern world, the medical awareness has increased; however, the health levels continue to deteriorate and there are more and more heart patients every year. Major reason behind the increased number of heart attacks is our poor eating and sleeping habits. On top of that many people avoid any kind of physical activity or workout. By eating healthy and adopting a strong exercise schedule, you can minimise the risk of a heart attack.
The blockage of blood in an artery which supplies blood to the brain is called a stroke. Stroke symptoms do not include any kind of pain most of the time; however, it is most likely that you may lose your ability to move during a stroke.
In most cases, strokes affect only one side of the body. In order to avoid the confusion between a heart attack and a stroke, the medical community is trying to change the name of stroke to ‘brain attack’.
