Get the new app and predict your own heart attack

DO you want to know if your boss is going to give you a heart attack?

A new app can work out when you might expect cardiac arrest, but not based on whether your boss stresses you out or not.

The online app designed by the British National Health Service – for anyone older than 30 – works out your estimated heart age and when you are likely to have a heart attack.

Factors that put you at risk are being overweight, having diabetes, high blood pressure, high (LDL) and low (HDL) cholesterol, irregular heart rhythm, a family history of the disease and being a smoker.
