Experts warn that 1.50 crore people worldwide die of heart disease every year, and 90 lac people are from developing countries.
Experts have announced that September 24 will be the first World Heart Day. Indians are four times more likely to have the arterial vascular disease than Americans.
6 times more than China. And 20 times more than the Japanese. Such an opinion was expressed by the President of All India Heart Foundation, Shri Dr. S. Padmavati.
Heart disease accounts for half of all deaths worldwide due to various diseases. By 2015, 34 percent of men and 32 percent of women will die of heart disease.
