Bhubaneswar, Sept 29: Today is World Heart Day and this day is celebrated to increase awareness of cardiovascular disease and how to prevent it.
As we all know that heart disease is the leading cause of death nowadays and as per the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 18 million people die each year from this cause. In fact 85% of the deaths are because of heart attack and stroke. The use of tobacco, unhealthy diet, obesity, physical inactivity, hypertension and harmful use of alcohol are the main cause and risk factors that increase the chance of having a heart attack or stroke.
Recent studies have also revealed that a little meditation and lifestyle can positively impact heart health by reducing stress and lowering blood pressure and heart rate. It can also benefit overall health, including heart health.
Some of the causes of heart attack are:
- Chest Pain or Discomfort
- Discomfort in other parts of body
In the year 1999, WHF and WHO established World Heart Day and the theme for this day is our planet, our health. Various events are also held all across the world to educate people about cardiovascular disease (CVD) and its warning signs, prevention methods, and how to assist those who may be affected.

Dr. Vibhutendra Mohanty, senior consultant Cardiologists, Sum Ultimate Medicare, Bhubaneswar said, “Heart pumps the blood around your body through blood vessels. This blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body to help your organs and muscles work properly. When the heart stops beating, it can cause death or permanent brain damage within minutes. In general sense we can say that heart is the pump house of the body. So to keep our heart healthy we shouldn’t drink, smoke, not have fast food or oily food in daily basis and should do check-up and tests like X-Ray, ECG, ECHO and TMT.”
Dr. Banabihari Mishra, senior consultant Cardiologists, Sum Ultimate Medicare, Bhubaneswar said, “As we all know that ‘Prevention is better than treatment’, in case we feel shortness of breath or chest pain, nausea, dizziness, cold sweating or such activities then we must consult a doctor and can easily get rid of heart attack.”
