Coronary heart disease, the foremost cause of mortality in Australia, results from the gradual accumulation of fatty deposits on the inner walls of the coronary arteries. These vital arteries supply blood to the heart muscles. Termed atherosclerosis, the formation of these fatty plaques can reach a critical point, leading to diminished blood flow and triggering angina (chest pain) or potentially resulting in a heart attack. Importantly, the process of plaque buildup in arteries commences early in life and may progress significantly by middle age.
