Hi Navneet,


Statistics from the American Heart Association - 1 out of 4 men and 1 out of 3 women who survive a heart attack will diet within the following year, usually due to cardiac arrest or another heart attack.  Your risk is dependent on the lifestyle changes and preventive measurers you take to reduce your risk.


All the best,
