Want a clue to your risk of heart disease? It could be determined in your appearance.
New research suggests that people with certain signs of aging have a greater chance of developing heart disease than younger-looking people the same age do.
The study involved 11,000 people in Denmark whose appearance was mapped at the start.
Thirty-five years later, researchers found that those with receding hairlines, bald heads, creases near their ear lobes or bumpy deposits on their eyelids were more likely to have had a heart attack or clogged arteries than those without one of these four signs.
