Cardiac Diet


According to that Indian Heart Association, the public health estimates show that India accounts for approximately 60% of the world’s heart disease burden. This is despite the fact that India has less than 20% of the world’s population. Among Indians, heart disease remains the number one cause of mortality and is a silent epidemic.
