In brief: Many things

The major ones are lifestyle and genetics.
Eating a diet loaded with saturated fats (i.E animal products), sedentary lifestyle, and genetic predisposition is the recipe for heart disease.

In brief: Living in America

Bad diet, lack of exercise, living to be older than nature expected, and the general failure of our genes to protect us from these illnesses.
Give it another 10, 000 years and hopefully we'll adapt.
