In brief: Symptoms?

If you have symptoms (angina or heart attack), you need to be under a doctor's care.
For everyone concerned about arteriosclerosis: don't smoke, eat a Mediterranean Diet, keep BP under control, try to be optimal weight, exercise daily. If you're >65, have diabetes, or known blockage, take aspirin daily (at least 75 mg).
