ESC promotes World Heart Day

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is promoting heart health as part of its campaign to support World Heart Day on 29 September.

Heart health is particularly important in India and China, where there are more cases of cardiovascular disease than in all developed countries combined, said ESC spokesperson Dr. Stephan Gielen Halle.

Gielen added that prevention is the best way to reverse the steady increase in metabolic and cardiovascular disease around the world.

ESC spokesperson Dr. Sania Nishtar from Islamabad, Pakistan, said healthy diet and physical activity at home and at work can lead to a longer, healthier life.
