The heart of the average person is aging faster than any other organs and systems of 10 years. To such conclusion scientists from the UK survey of the health status of 575 thousand people.
Doctors have observed an interesting picture. Approximately every seventh Briton, according to information received, has worn the heart at a relatively young age. If you translate this fact in life, that such a heart is older than other parts of the body for 10 years. Every 14th of the examined person's heart turned over at all for 15 years.
The reason for the phenomenon is simple. Part of it is due to unhealthy lifestyle and increased cholesterol in the blood. Many people have a genetic predisposition to cardiovascular diseases. In General, the heart is one of the weakest parts of the human body. That is why his health should be given special attention.
