Risk Factors

There are factors that increase one’s risk for heart disease that can be controlled, such as abstaining from smoking and getting regular exercise, and then there are those that cannot be controlled, such as your family history of heart disease. Visit the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (PDF) for a fact sheet of each and questions to ask your doctor. (Photo: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
