In brief: Atherosclerosis
Treat risk factors before you have symptoms/ problems.
If you have a strong family history, you can't be checked out young enough! 1. Treat high blood pressure, diabetes, lipids and triglycerides 2. Lose weight, exercise, quit smoking 3. Low fat, low glycemic diet.

In brief: Yes and no
Atherosclerosis is a complex disease with many factors playing a role in its development.
If you have a genetic predisposition to developing it there is likely little that can be done to prevent it. However there is a lot you can do to delay its development and limit its extent. Among things you can do are eat a healthy diet, regular exercise, maintain a normal body weight and do not smoke.
