In brief: Know your numbers!
You might not be able to completely prevent heart disease but you can certainly remediate your risk by awareness and good habits.
Stop smoking, lose weight, control cholesterol and blood pressure and blood sugar, exercise every day. The first step is to know where you are right now which means testing with your doctor and partnering with your doctor to achieve your goals and improve your outcome.

In brief: Many preventive
Measures but not total prevention.
Major determinants like smoking, dyslipidemia and diabetes can be modified. But, sex, age, genetics, etc are beyond one's control. All preventive measures merely slow down the rate of worsening coronary disease. In time, it will catch up no matter what one's station in life is.
