The greatest risk for having an MI (heart attack) is over 60 years of age. But it also depends on what other risk factors you have...i.e. diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc.

I've read somewhere that the average is 55 for men, 65 for women. This is not a hard and fast rule.
