Intermountain researchers have been studying the puzzling trend of the high-frequency of heart attacks among people who don't have commonly known modifiable risks for cardiovascular disease, including smoking, high-blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

For heart attacks that come from blocked arteries (ST-elevation heart attacks) it's one in four patients. In heart attacks where oxygen is still getting to the heart but not enough (non-ST-elevation heart attacks, which are more common), it's one in five patients.
