If you're at risk for a heart attack, you should do more than take cholesterol-lowering medication. Researchers at the University of Texas studied 400 people with heart disease and found that those who took only medication had a 30 percent risk for a heart attack or open-heart surgery. But those who took medication, ate a low-fat diet and exercised had a 5 percent risk.
