The interface is quite ugly although in this case it’s not so important, although it may cause some surprise when you see it.The program starts by asking you your age.

Anyway, the following question is about your systolic blood pressure. I know the vast majority of you don’t know what this is, but I’m sure if you had your blood tested, there will be a value between 98 and 186 referring to this. Enter your cholesterol level, which should be between 139 and 331 and specify the HDL, the good cholesterol. That’s all you have to insert to know the probability of having a heart attack in the next 10 years, expressed as a percentage.
I think a couple of other questions should have been added in the test. If you are a woman under HRT, hormonal replacement therapy, for example the probability of having a heart attack rises a lot especially when combined with smoking. Also, everyone consuming hydrogenated fats increases considerably their probability of having a heart attack.
