Keeping up with the beat - 101 for the Indian heart
A vibrant country with a big heart, India has always captivated the world with enticing smiles, scents, and sceneries. But India's unrelenting heart is at risk and it's time we take notice. The past two decades have seen heart disease become the leading cause of mortality in the country, with a fourth of all deaths attributable to various cardiovascular diseases.
What's worse is the fact that the condition affects us Indians in our most productive middle years. Asians are predisposed to weaker hearts than our European counterparts. 52 percent of all cardiovascular deaths in India occur before the age of 70, and according to the Times of India, heart attacks kill 1 person every 33 seconds in the country.
This growing epidemic has even earned India the reputation of being the coronary capital of the world. It's time we take our heart health into our own hands and progress to become a healthier people.
