2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

There are racial differences in all the risk factors for heart attacks such as smoking, diabetes, cholesterol levels, high blood pressure obesity and so on.
There may also be geographical and other social-economic differences in stress levels etc. Consequently with all these variables the risk profiles of different people can get very complicated. See your doctor to determine your individual risk.

Why would you ask? The main question is about risk factors for mi before they occur. See doc to check before catastrophe.
