*** REMEMBER THE DATE ***
World Heart Day, September 29, 2011
This year’s World Heart Day, World Heart Federation and its members would like you to take special care to heart health of your family, home and be a lawyer for a healthy lifestyle at home.
Each year, 17.1 million people suffer from cardiovascular diseases (CVD), such as myocardial infarction and stroke, and 82% of deaths occur in low-and medium-developed countries. These diseases are the number one killer on the list of diseases, but most of these deaths can be prevented with a healthy diet, regular physical activity and smoking cessation.
World leaders say that prevention and control of CVD along with other so-called non-communicable diseases (NCD) such as cancers, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes should be a real priority, so 10 days before the celebration of World Heart Day, for the first time ever; a Special Summit of The United Nations will be devoted to non-communicable diseases. This year’s motto of World Heart Day is selected as a result of great importance and responsibility for NCD, that are now a major priority in the agenda of global and local health authorities, but the responsibility for a healthy heart should certainly bear and each individual in his home.
“One world, one home, one heart”:
Join the fight to improve heart health in every HOME WORLDWIDE!
