“If you already have cardiovascular disease, staying as healthy as possible can reduce the chances of it getting worse,” the national health service adds.

As cardiovascular disease increases the risks of blood clots, if one blocks the blood supply to the heart, a heart attack ensues.

To help minimise such a life-threatening risk, people should adhere to a “balanced diet”.

This means the diet is full of fruits, vegetables, wholegrain foods, and plenty of fibre.
