A recent study is of the view that the Y chromosome in men is sometimes responsible for the link to a coronary heart disease.
The genetic variations in the Y chromosome are the reason for the onset of this potentially lethal disease. The research has been done by Dr. Helene Wilson from the British Heart Foundation.
“CHD is the cause of heart attacks, which claim the lives of around 50,000 UK men every year. Lifestyle choices such as poor diet and smoking are major causes but inherited factors carried in DNA are also part of the picture”, she said.
It was further revealed that the study might give some sort of evidence about the reason for which the men in Northwestern Europe are more prone to having heart attacks than men from other places in the world.
A research was conducted by the scientist team from the University of Leicester and there were tests done on 3,200, and it was discovered that this variation in the Y chromosome, might be the possible reason for the onset of the disease.
There is need for more research and development to be done, before there can be ways found to stop the mutation of this chromosome which might result in fewer heart attacks.
There are other risk factors that might be controllable to a certain extent and men need to try their best to work out and eat healthy to stay fit. They should also make it a point to try and give up evils such as drinking and smoking, as this shall simply increase their risk of heart diseases in the long run.
The research might be able to help the increasing number of heart disease cases in the world.
