Surveys from the Sample Registration System (SRS) 2014 show, coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death at all ages after stroke, which is 12.9 percent.
Based on basic health research data in 2013, the highest cause of the emergence of coronary heart disease is cardiovascular disease or heart disease.
There are several factors that can trigger the arrival of heart disease. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of it.
Here are five unexpected factors that cause heart disease.
- Lack of sleep
When we rest, the body works hard to repair DNA, increase vitamin levels, and produce antioxidants.
Research has proven that those with a healthy lifestyle – such as exercise, eating nutritious foods, not smoking and consuming alcohol – are 67 percent less likely to avoid heart disease.
Researchers also found the fact, those who slept with sufficient intensity -7-8 hours overnight, 83 percent lower to avoid heart disease.
The research was conducted by observing 1,500 people for 14 years. Evidently, that sleep is the best break, and experts also agreed to make sleep as a priority for health.
So, in order for us to have good quality and quantity of sleep, experts advise us to use a cool, dark and uninterrupted room and set the hours of sleep before the night is too late.
- Less happy
Scientists have asked a group of people with heart disease risk to complete tests that measure welfare, optimism, and life satisfaction.
After examining the participants for 25 years, the researchers found the facts, the happiest and most optimistic people had only one-third the risk of heart disease than the other participants.
In fact, participants with the highest risk of heart disease also managed to cut half of the risk of heart disease when feeling the happiness and optimism.
People are optimistic and happy to always expect the future and tend to prepare themselves for a healthier lifestyle.
- Too much exposure to air pollution
Chemicals in polluted air can increase inflammation in the body, increase oxidation, and contaminate vital organs such as the heart.
Scientists in Vancouver, British Columbia, found the fact that increased traffic and noise pollution led to an increase in the number of deaths from heart disease, by as much as six percent for nearly ten years.
When the factory in Beijing is closed for two months, – during the 2008 Olympics, to improve air quality, Chinese citizens experience increased blood pressure and better arterial health.
So, to avoid the risk of heart disease, avoid cigarette smoke, stay away from motor vehicle fumes while outside, and avoid situations where poor air quality, such as roasting in the house.
- Too much exposure to heavy metal poison
As many as three-quarters of people have high levels of chemicals in the blood such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, which can poison the enzymes that function in the healing process.
The scientists conducted research by examining more than 1,400 heart attack sufferers.
Participants in the study were divided into two, in which participants in the first group received weekly infusions of drugs that could remove heavy metals or chelation therapy.
Meanwhile, participants in the second group received a placebo or “fake” drug without any efficacy for 30 weeks.
As a result, participants in the first group, especially diabetics, experienced fewer heart attacks.
This research still needs more research. But to avoid it, we should start implementing a healthy lifestyle by eating organic foods.
We can also use environmentally friendly cleaning products, and filter tap water.
Eat foods that contain vegetables, especially dark green leafy vegetables, which is useful to help the heart to remove these metal toxins.
To stress can increase the cortisol and adrenaline that make blood sugar rise and blood vessels harden.
To see the effects of stress, researchers examined 21 people with heart disease and provided training on heart health.
The researchers also give instructions on how to meditate on this matter.
After five years, those who meditate have a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and death, up to 50 percent in heart attacks.
