Expert Doctors of Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre (MMHRC) cautioned that Globally cardiovascular diseases have been responsible for the deaths of over 20 million individuals each year, which marks a concerning 20% increase compared to the past decade. However, a staggering 80% of heart diseases result from individuals neglecting preventive actions or pushing things to the extreme, whether it’s intense physical training or the excessive intake of high-protein diets and supplements.

In connection with World Heart Day, which falls on September 29 every year, the experts at Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre also highlighted that alongside traditional risk factors such as smoking, hypertension, and diabetes, new factors including chronic mental stress and intensifying environmental pollution are playing a significant role in the increasing prevalence of heart problems. They urged that everyone, including healthy, younger individuals, should get regular health checkups to know their health risks related to factors such as blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. This knowledge is essential for them to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, diet, and exercise routines.
