The Increasing Burden of Cardiac Disease in India- Dr. Ganeshakrishnan Iyer

“The increasing burden of cardiac disease in India is worrisome and must be brought under control. Higher rates of indoor and outdoor pollution, combined with a shift towards a sedentary lifestyle and an increase in life threatening habits such as smoking, vaping and other drug abuse, particularly in the urban youth, poses a threat to the heart health of the nation. Unfortunately, incidences of heart attacks have been occurring in very young age groups, even between the ages of 20-30. India is home to the largest youth population, and we must ensure that we pass down healthy lifestyle habits to the next generations. It is also important to keep heart health in check with regular screenings, to catch early signs of a deteriorating heart so that the damage can be managed or reversed. No matter the age, a healthier diet and active lifestyle can bring incredible health benefits to the body, including the heart.”
