Identify several factors that might have contributed to your grandmother's condition.
Harvard School of Public Health 2009 The researchers also found large effects from a series of other preventable dietary and lifestyle risk factors. Below are the numbers of deaths in the U.S. due annually to each of the individual risk factors examined: Smoking: 467,000 High blood pressure: 395,000 Overweight-obesity: 216,000 Inadequate physical activity and inactivity: 191,000 High blood sugar: 190,000 High LDL cholesterol: 113,000 High dietary salt: 102,000 Low dietary omega-3 fatty acids (seafood): 84,000 High dietary trans fatty acids: 82,000 Alcohol use: 64,000 (alcohol use averted a balance of 26,000 deaths from heart disease, stroke and diabetes, because moderate drinking reduces risk of these diseases.
