Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Many people at high risk for a heart attack have no desire to change their lifestyle.

That's according to a new Canadian study that surveyed over 45,000 adults about their weight, exercise habits, diet and smoking status. While most high-risk people agreed they needed to make changes more than half said they did not have the time or self-discipline. Nearly 18 percent said they felt no need to improve their health.
