Heart Disease is still a leading killer all over the world and its not only men but also women seem to be affected with this life eliminator. It has been reported that out of every 3 heart patients at least 2 are men and it is also known that the heart disease strike women 10 to 15 years after it strikes a man and the reason for this is not known.
As per the study and reports it is assumed that the answer tot his may lie in the Y chromosome which is unique in men and is not present in women. A research was conducted and the researchers found out that all men actually have 2 huddles of genes on their Y chromosome. The risk of heart problem was irrespective of factors which lead to heart attack like smoking, diabetes etc. The men with these clusters had 50% more chances of heart diseases as compared to the men with the other variant.
The study is not definite as reported by the researchers, as even the researchers do not know as to why these 2 genes are possible for the increased risk in heart attack. It is a well known fact that men who lived their life on the edge and ignored their health by getting involved in unhealthy habits like smoking, and men who suffered from high cholesterol and diabetes were actually spared from a heart attack and men who controlled their sugar and cholesterol levels faced the wrath of heart disorder.
The researchers were amazed to see the facts that the clusters that were found in the Y chromosome actually increased the risk of heart rate in men. It was also noted that by only having a Y chromosome could also be factor as women have two X chromosome. The extra X could be productive.
Many heart disease researcher have ignored the possibility of Y chromosome could actually lead to a Heart attack and it was often used to determine maleness. It was suggested by the researchers that the presence of Y chromosome genes in men may lower the risk of heart attack if the inflammation could be controlled, but the researchers still feel that a lot of study needs to be conducted before the final report is prepared on this matter.
