A report by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that up to 17 million deaths occur each year related to cardiovascular disease. Half of these cases take place in Asia, and in Vietnam, up to 200,000 Vietnamese die from cardiovascular disease each year.


A common misconception that facilitates the development of heart disease is that heart disease is triggered solely by genetic factors, diabetes, obesity and the elderly. But the real reason is not only that, the unhealthy lifestyle as well as the unscientific diet have caused these effects.


Get in the habit of consuming harmful fats because of the high intake of saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol. These are the main factors that can easily lead you to the risk of heart disease, even atherosclerosis. In addition, the habit of eating less green vegetables together with high salt (sodium) intake in the diet can lead to high blood pressure.

Build a scientific diet.

Alcohol abuse

It is impossible not to deny the bustle at pubs everywhere. Therefore, excessive alcohol consumption can increase blood pressure and heart disease risk, because triglyceride levels, a form of cholesterol, can increase arteriosclerosis.

When drinking alcohol, breathing, heart rate, perception, regulating blood electrolyte changes and completely can cause a stroke. For people with low blood pressure and high blood pressure when drinking alcohol, they cause arrhythmia. Studies have shown that fast heart rate, palpitations, shortness of breath ... due to drinking alcohol increases the risk of stroke by 5 times, easily leading to embolism.


Smoking can damage the heart and blood vessels, increasing the risk of heart disease such as atherosclerosis and heart attack. In addition, nicotine increases blood pressure, and carbon monoxide reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood.

Non-smokers but secondhand smoke also increases the risk of heart disease and stroke by more than 30%. Even inhaling second-hand smoke only causes damage to blood vessels, causing blood to coalesce, causing a fatal heart attack.

If you are a healthy person - Say no to tobacco.

Too late to regret when your heart stops beating

Most people do not think that such lifestyles have contributed to such a big impact on the heart. And really, cardiovascular disease is very susceptible, accompanied by the indifference of people when ignoring the small signs of the disease such as hypertension, shortness of breath and chest tightness, ... Until the heart stops beating, they I realized the dangers of it.

We must love our own hearts.

Therefore, we must love our own hearts. The habits of daily life must be changed from strengthening sports training, building a scientific diet as well as a healthy lifestyle.

Heart disease always progresses silently with signs that are easily confused with other conditions, until it is clear that the disease is dangerous because it is difficult to treat and many complications. Therefore, cardiovascular screening 2 times / year is the most effective way to control the disease. Cardiovascular screening helps identify cardiovascular risk factors, as well as early detection of coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathy, congenital congenital heart disease, etc.
