: Hi, all. I suspect my family may have a running heart condition. My grandfather died of coronary heart disease. My father won't go to a doctor so I can't be certain of any pattern. Does anyone have good info regarding the genetic nature of this?

I read that coronary heart disease is indeed linked with genetic factors. How much it is affected by genes and how it can be prevented with gene research is still not for sure. I've found info in a lot of med related sites, you can find them in some search engines like yahoo and altavista. A site as a good starter is dna.com. Is your father a generally healthy man? Heart disease isn't all genes.
