DALLAS, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Most deaths caused by heart attacks can be avoided by making prevention a number one goal, according to medical experts at U.S. Preventive Medicine, the leader in disease prevention.

"It's always shocking to hear when someone dies of a heart attack, whether that person is a high profile celebrity, a family member or the neighbor down the street. But it's a death that shouldn't happen in the first place," says Dr. Sami Beg, Associate Medical Director at U.S. Preventive Medicine.

Heart attacks occur when the blood supply to a part of the heart is disrupted, according to Dr. Beg. A decrease in oxygen damages the heart tissue and sometimes kills it. More common in old age, others can also be impacted especially if they have a family history of heart problems or a personal history of prior heart disease or stroke. Other factors such as smoking, being overweight or obese, having high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes, all increase the risk of a heart attack.

"One out of every five deaths in the United States occurs because of heart attacks and many individuals who are stricken with heart attacks often seem healthy," says Dr. Beg. "That's why it is critically important that no matter how we look or feel, we invest the time and effort into preventive measures. Furthermore, we need to take care of all the other risk factors which may be causing medical problems on the inside which we may not be aware of."

For example, smokers are two to four times more likely to develop heart disease than non-smokers. Similarly, those who are overweight or obese have a higher risk, according to Dr. Beg.

"Hearing or reading about a heart attack should not scare people but make them think about implementing strategies now so they can prevent complications
