Heart Disease

Cardiovascular Diseases of the heart and blood vessels kill more than 16 million people worldwide and account for 30 percent of the total number of deaths each year. Additional millions are disabled, frequently in their prime years. In the U.S., an estimated 61.8 million people live with cardiovascular disease. Heart disease and stroke, the main components of cardiovascular disease, account for nearly 40 percent of all deaths in the nation.

Decades of research show that lifestyle, beginning in childhood, is the main cause of cardiovascular disease. The major risk factors are high blood pressure, tobacco use, poor dietary habits, especially the intake of saturated fat, elevated blood cholesterol, lack of physical activity, obesity, and diabetes.

Lifestyle changes are the first line of prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Medical interventions range from drugs to surgery. For example, a bypass operation may be performed to reduce a person’s risk of a heart attack. In this operation, a blood vessel from elsewhere in the body is used to reroute blood around a blocked coronary artery (one of two arteries that arise from the aorta and supply the tissues of the heart with blood).

There are other several modern treatment but with all these treatment if someone practice Yoga exercise,meditation and some other form of alternative therapy, one can live long with a peaceful and happy life.
