The heart is our strongest muscle which, if you are currently at rest, has just been beating 50 to 70 times a minute. By our 70th year, it will average more than 2.5 trillion times.
It is our heart that becomes vulnerable due to harmful influences such as stress, unhealthy diet, smoking, physical inactivity and being overweight. According to the World Health Organization, more than 17.5 million people worldwide die each year from cardiovascular diseases, which are the leading cause of death and disability. It is predicted that by 2030, that number will be almost 23 million. Doctors warn that as many as 80 percent of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke can be prevented by changing risky behaviors. Therapy and maintenance of healthy living habits are especially important for heart patients during the Covid 19 pandemic.
