World Heart Day which is celebrated every year on 29th September was created by World Heart Federation.
The main aim of celebrating this day is to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease, its prevention and the impact of it on people across the world.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death globally. Fortunately, the main causes of cardiovascular disease are modifiable factors, which include lack of exercise, smoking, and a poor diet.
You can help keep your heart and blood vessels healthy by taking steps toward a healthier lifestyle. These healthy habits include not smoking, eating right, exercising regularly, staying at a healthy weight, and getting the screening tests you need.
