The passing of Shane Warne should be a wake up call to ALL men with the official cause of death being released to the public serving as a timely reminder for all men to get regular check ups and assess whether or not they are getting enough regular exercise and maintaining a healthy diet.

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone in Australia or abroad who didn’t know who the the King of Spin was, and by King of Spin we don’t mean a former Prime Minister. But none other than the only Australian to claim 708 Test wickets at 25.41 in 145 matches between 1992 and 2007 and regarded as the best in the business, Shane Warne. With the official cause of death announced as Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis, also known as Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), it’s time we did more to prevent more men dyeing of the disease.

Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis is a condition in which the arteries that supply blood to the heart become narrowed or blocked due to the build-up of fatty deposits called plaques. This build-up of plaque can cause the walls of the arteries to thicken and harden, reducing the flow of blood to the heart and increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Men are at a higher risk of developing coronary artery atherosclerosis, especially as they age. The risk increases significantly after the age of 45 and continues to rise with each passing decade.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW), in 2019, CHD was the leading cause of death among men, accounting for approximately 12,000 deaths or around 25% of all male deaths in the country.

With those statistics it’s never been more important for men to get regular check-ups, especially as they get older. Regular check-ups allow for early detection and intervention, which can greatly improve the chances of successful treatment.

Regular check-ups aren’t the only solution and despite the disease being such a large killer amongst men, it is highly preventable and there are several lifestyle changes that men can make to reduce their risk of developing Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis. Exercise is one of the most important of these changes. Regular exercise helps to improve cardiovascular health and can reduce the risk of heart disease, It is recommended that men get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise and research has shown men who exercise intensively are 50% less likely to develop Heart disease and those who do recover and live a lot longer than those who don’t exercise or undertake mediate exercise.

Another important step that men can take to reduce their risk of developing Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis is to adopt a healthy diet. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources can help to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. On the other hand, a diet that is high in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol can increase the risk of heart disease.

Coronary Artery Atherosclerosis is a major threat to men’s health, and the risk increases with age but 90% of cases are 100% preventable through Regular check-ups, exercise, and a healthy diet.
