Calculate Your Heart Attack Risk

The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) has posted an online tool that calculates your 10-year risk of having a heart attack.

Just enter your age, gender, cholesterol, and blood pressure info and let it do its crunching.

NCEP's Tool for Estimating 10-year Risk of Developing CHD

Note - This tool is not for those with diabetes or who already have heart disease, factors likely to shave a few years off your answer.
