Today it is only blood pressure, tomorrow it will be a heart attack. With increasing incidence of heart disease all around us, it’s funny how we still think we are not affected. DrAshokSeth-large.jpg While 33% of the population has some form of heart disease, 66% do not know that they have high blood pressure. And from among those who know they have high blood pressure, 45% of them are not well controlled. Hypertension, a silent killer, has put a large segment of Indian population at risk of heart attacks, heart failures and strokes. “All Indians are like loaded guns. Triggering a few risk factors is all that is required for the gun to fire and cause a heart attack,” says Dr. Ashok Seth in an interview with Dr. Manish Verma “Therefore, Prevention of heart disease must become a science. It must incorporate everybody from general physicians to cardiac surgeons and everything from basic lifestyle modification to technological advances of science.” “Simple lifestyle modifications like eating less salt, having more fruits and vegetables, regular exercise and a normal body weight, can get your blood pressure down by 20 mm and decrease the incidence of heart attack by 25%.” Say no to the 6S – salt, sugar, smoking, stress, saturated fats and sedentary lifestyle to support the mission of ‘Swasth Dil, Swasth Bharath’.
