30pc to 40pc deaths are due to CVDs


Staff Reporter

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disability in the world, claiming 17.9 million lives a year. That’s a third of all deaths on the planet and half of all non-communicable-disease-related deaths. Around 85% of these deaths are due to heart disease and stroke. Looking after your heart means taking small but meaningful actions: eating a balanced diet, undertaking regular exercise & quitting smoking – all the things that make you not only healthier but also able to enjoy your life to the fullest, said Dr. Asad Ali Saleem.
