New analysis from PHE’s Heart Age Test shows many have a heightened risk of a potentially fatal heart attack or stroke.  The HA Test is the only known way of measuring our heart age, which shows how many years we can expect to live healthily without a heart attack or stroke.  The higher our heart age, the higher our risk.
