Atherosclerosis can lead to serious problems including heart attack, stroke or even death. It can affect any artery in the body, including arteries in the heart, brain, arms, legs, pelvis and kidneys. As a result, different diseases may develop based on which arteries are affected.
There are five proven ways to prevent or reduce your risk of developing coronary atherosclerosis:
- Exercise regularly
- Eat a healthy diet
- Moderate consumption of alcohol
- Don't smoke, or quit smoking
- Lose weight if you are overweight
The images below of coronary atherosclerosis were captured with the RB30 biological microscope. A high definition microscopy camera was used to capture the images to an SD card.
