People who have three to four ageing signs including a receding hairline, baldness, creased earlobes or fatty deposits around the eyelid, have a 57 per cent higher risk of a heart attack and a 39 per cent increased risk of heart disease, according to scientists.They say that xanthelasmata – deposits of cholesterol under the skin – is the strongest predictor for both heart attacks and heart disease.
