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.

Green Vegetables
Vitamin B-rich foods have an important part to play in energy production, so incorporating these into your diet is going to be a big help when you want to fight fatigue.
