*Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
*Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
*Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
*Other signs may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you're not sure it's a heart attack, have it checked out (tell a doctor about your symptoms). Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don’t wait more than five minutes to call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number.

While you can't do much about your genes, regular exercise, eating right and dealing with stress are lifestyle behaviors you can control.
In general, eat more plant foods, fish, poultry and low-fat dairy foods. Cook with moderate amounts of olive or canola oil instead of butter, margarine or shortening.
Some examples of foods for heart health include:
* beans, peas and barley
* soybeans, other soy-based foods (not soybean oil)
* fruits and vegetables
* salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel
* red grapes and purple grape juice
* nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts
* green or black tea
* onions, scallions, shallots, garlic and leeks
