    heart failure

    Is "heart failure" same as "hear attack"? I think medically speaking, the former is more chronic, while the latter is quite acute.

    42)...Over the course of a lifetime, feeling uncomfortable with your body causes enormous stress and may eventually lead to such conditions as a weaked immune system, heart failure, and in the most extreme cases, death.

    No, heart failure is not the same as "heart attack, although one or more non-fatal heart attacks can lead to heart failure. Your "weaked" should be "weakened".
