      Principally an unhealthy life style can cause heart problems. Not eating the correct food, not exercising, being too stressed all can affect how healthy your heart is. The major concern about the heart is how likely you are to have a heart attack! A heart attack can occur when the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle are blocked and cause the heart mucle cells to die. They can never be repaired and your heart may not beat as healthily.
