With the increasing rate of heart attack and concern over one's chances of having a heart attack, Dr Hassan Tehrani, Endo Vascular Surgeon, ARTEMIS, gives us tips to the most commonly occurring question “How can a heart attack be prevented?” A glass of red wine can help improve the overall cardiovascular health as it has anti-oxidants that keep the arteries healthy by keeping plaque away. Having an aspirin enhances the cardiovascular health as it makes the blood thinner and lets the blood cells circulate smoothly throughout the body and prevent blood clots in the arteries. What one must, however, keep in mind before seeking help in red wine and aspirin to improve heart health is to consult a physician.
