'Emerging Health Problems and their Solutions : Lifestyle and Cardiovascular Disorders' talk by Dr. Ashwani Mehta, Consultant Cardiologist at the Dharma Vira Heart Centre, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital
First in a new series of lectures being coordinated by Dr. Raman Kapur. The changing lifestyle of Indians has
reduced the physical activities of people, particularly in urban India leading to rapid onset of many diseases. With modernization, a large proportion of Indians are trading healthy traditional diets for fatty foods, physical jobs for desk bound sloth, the relative calm of the countryside for the stressful city. Heart-attack victims are just the first wave of a swelling population of Indians with heart problems and 80 per cent of global cardiovascular diseases related deaths now occur in low and middle-income nations, which cover most countries in Asia. What can be done to reverse this trend and how can we live long healthy life will be discussed.
