Cholesterol and high blood pressure have no physical symptoms, but a simple and common sign on the face could be a warning sign.

It might be difficult to recognize the symptoms of heart disease, which claims the lives of about 659,000 Americans each year.

Often, high blood pressure is the cause of heart disease, which is also known as the “silent killer” because it doesn’t show up with any signs.

In medical terms, this illness is known as high blood pressure, and it causes the blood vessels in your body to harden, reducing blood flow to your heart and brain.

Hypertension is a serious disease, yet many people don’t realize they have it until they have a heart attack or a stroke. However, new studies have shown that forehead wrinkles may indicate a person’s risk of developing heart disease.

The study, led by Yolanda Esquirol, a physician and researcher at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Toulouse in France, suggested that there may be a link between forehead wrinkles and the risk of heart disease.

Participants in the study were given a score based on the depth of wrinkles on their foreheads, which ranged from zero to three.

The participants, aged 32 to 62, were followed over a period of 20 years. The study included 3,200 adults, and over this time period, 233 of them died.

15.2% of individuals who died had wrinkle scores of two or three, 6.6% had wrinkle scores of one, and 2.1% had no wrinkles.

There was a slightly increased risk of cardiovascular disease death among those with a score of one, compared to those with no wrinkles.

In addition, higher wrinkle scores were linked to an increased risk of heart disease and death. A person’s mortality risk was nearly ten times higher for those who received a score of two or three.

The study found that other age-related changes may also signal cardiac disease.

Previous studies found that indications such as male-pattern baldness and earlobe wrinkles are associated with a higher risk of heart disease, but not with a higher risk of mortality from heart disease.
