Older Looking People Have Greater Risk of Heart Attack

Older Looking People Have Greater Risk of Heart Attack
People who look old for their age have a 57 percentincreased risk of heart attack and a 39 percent greater risk for heart disease— according to a study from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Markers of premature aging included receding hairlines, bald heads, wrinkles and bumpy deposits on the earlobes. They assessed the relationship between apparent aging and heart attack rates in 11,000 people living in Denmark. The risk increased with the number of aging signs. The old saying that you are only as old as you feel should be changed to “you’re only as old as you look.” (Paper presented at American Heart Association meeting)
