High stress levels and a sedentary life-style is lowering the average age of cardiac patients in the Czech Republic. In the past 15 years the average age of heart attack patients has dropped from 63 to 49 and cardiologists say 30-year-old cardiac patients are no longer an exception. One in twelve sufferers die of cardiac arrest, one if four get it again. Doctors blame a lack of physical activity and an unhealthy diet for the fact that 70 percent of adult Czechs have high cholesterol levels, one in three are overweight, and one in five obese.
