11 Signs You Are About To Have a Heart Attack

Heart disease is either the number 1 or number 2 killer of Americans. Heart attacks present themselves differently in each person and even between the sexes.

However, there are enough common symptoms that if you experience one or two of these symptoms suddenly, you may want to either call 911 or visit the ER.


Risks include age (over 65), sex (male), family history, race (African descent), smoking, obesity and diet, lack of exercise, high cholesterol, alcohol consumption, and stress.

You don’t have to have risk factors to have a heart attack, so be aware of symptoms!

Your Navel Shape Can Reveal The Disease You're Suffering From

The navel is a hollowed or raised area of the abdomen in all mammals which isn’t considered very important. We usually ignore its hygiene and never think much of it, but the navel can actually reveal a lot about our health. The navel sits at the attachment site of the umbilical cord – once the cord is detached, the scar stays in the abdominal area and forms the navel.

Your Navel Shape Can Reveal The Disease You're Suffering From

In order to avoid unwanted infections and bigger health problems, it’s necessary to care about the navel hygiene. There are several types of navels, and each of them can indicate what diseases you are more prone to. Here are the main navel types:

PROTRUDING NAVEL
A protruding belly button means that you’re at an increased risk of hernia, so experts suggest avoiding lifting heavy things.


SMALL NAVEL
People with small belly buttons should consume more vitamin C as they’re more prone to the flu and bacterial infections.

ALMOND-SHAPED NAVEL
This type of navel indicates higher risk of headaches and migraines, as well as brittle bones and weak muscles.

CIRCULAR NAVEL
This type of navel may indicate digestive problems such as constipation. It is most common among overweight and obese people.

U-SHAPED NAVEL
People with a U-shaped navel are more prone to kidney and skin diseases. Children born with this type of navel may suffer from some genetic problems.
