Monday Mornings and Heart Attack

Heart Attacks are more likely between 6 am and 10 am, when your blood pressure is the highest and more common on Mondays, possibly because of the stress of returning to work.

Silent Heart Attack :

Ignorance is not always a Bliss.

One in four heart Attack victims, it is estimated, do not realize they have had an attack until later, when they have an electrocardiogram for unrelated reasons and discover it.

Despite the lack of pain, the damage produced by a silent heart attack is still very real, and can predispose you to further heart attacks.
