Scientists have figured out which factor affects whether a person has a stroke or heart attack
A study conducted in the United States, has allowed scientists to establish which factor plays the role of the most accurate threat marker of vascular pathologies, such as strokes and heart attacks. Experts believe that in the diagnosis of these disorders need to pay attention to the presence of calcium in the arteries.
The researchers concluded that the presence of calcium deposits in the blood vessels determines the degree of risk of brain stroke or heart attack in humans. They said that people who have not observed the calcium in the arteries, have the lowest probability of suffering from a stroke or heart attack in the next 10 years of his life.

The authors of the project, representing southwestern medical center the University of Texas at Dallas, collected and analyzed data on health status derived from more than 6,000 thousand (6.2 thousand) people aged 45 to 84 years. Doctors were interested in how significant a threat for probable vascular accidents can be factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high bad cholesterol.
In the course of this investigation it became clear that the risk of a future heart attack and stroke is correlated with indicators of calcium deposits in the arteries.
The presence of calcium in the blood vessels, according to scientists, is so grave marker that people who don’t have it, are protected from heart attack and stroke even in the presence of other risks.
“People which there is accumulation of calcium in the blood vessels, can not take statins, despite the presence of other risk factors that cause coronary artery disease,” — noted experts.
