World Heart Day 2022

[bt_section][bt_row][bt_column width=”3/4″][bt_text] “USE HEART FOR EVERY HEART” is the theme for World Heart Day in 2022. The World Heart Federation had teamed up with digital health businesses to commemorate World Heart Day with the aim of raising awareness globally, avoiding CVD, and managing the condition. World Heart Day is observed annually on September 29 in order to raise awareness of cardiovascular diseases, their treatment, and the toll they have on society globally. According to WHO data, 17.9 million people die from cardiovascular illnesses each year, which accounts for 31% of all fatalities globally. These disorders, which primarily manifest as heart attacks and strokes, are caused by heavy cigarette use, bad eating habits, a lack of exercise, and drunkenness. Consequences of leading a poor lifestyle include elevated blood sugar levels, elevated high blood pressure, and being obese or overweight. The World Heart Federation established World Heart Day to increase public awareness of the numerous cardiovascular diseases that can seriously impair a person’s health. The leading cause of death worldwide, cardiovascular illnesses (CVDs), which include heart attacks and strokes, cost the lives of 18.6 million people each year. The purpose of World Health Day is to raise awareness of the lifestyle choices that can prevent people from developing a predisposition to cardiovascular diseases. These choices include an unbalanced diet, passive smoking, and a lack of physical activity, which appear to be sufficient to prevent 80 percent of preventable deaths from strokes and heart attacks. You will live a long and happy life if your heart is healthy. To secure a healthy future, encourage your family and friends to get a heart checkup on World Heart Day. On this World Heart Day, my best wishes are with you. Therefore, to maintain a happier and healthier state of mind, strive to avoid stressful circumstances as much as you can. Maintaining physical relaxation can contribute to a longer, healthier life. If you want to live a long and fulfilling life, keep your heart healthy. In honor of World Heart Day, think about committing to a heart-healthy lifestyle. Best wishes for you on this World Heart Day. Common Myths • Myth: Youngsters shouldn’t need to work out and may consume unhealthy foods on a daily basis. Reality: Abnormal eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle are harmful to people of all ages. Young individuals who do not make lifestyle changes and eating patterns may face an increased risk of heart disease in the long term. • Myth: Youngsters must not be concerned regarding heart disease since those over the age of 50 are the most vulnerable. Reality: Nowadays, anybody may be affected by heart disease. Young teenagers are targets. Plaques may form in the vessels of kids and teens, eventually clogging them. Overweight, type 2 diabetes, and a variety of other problems may be present in teenage and middle-aged individuals. • Myth:A common myth is that individuals with a history of family of heart disease are powerless since they can do nothing to avoid it.  Reality: Even if an individual seems to have a family background of heart disease, life choices such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and tight control over blood pressure & cholesterol levels may aid in avoiding heart diseases. • Myth:People with diabetes, even if they keep it under control, may still have cardiac problems. Reality: Individuals having ability to handle diabetes with medication are less likely to get heart disease. Developing diabetes, on the other hand, raises your risk of heart attack and stroke. It raises the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease in an individual. A person’s risks may also be exacerbated by conditions including hypertension, overweight, lethargy, and smoking [/bt_text][/bt_column][bt_column width=”1/4″]
