    Heart to Heart: All you need to know for better heart health

    Heart to Heart: All you need to know for better heart healthCoronary heart disease and stroke are the most common cardiovascular diseases. They are the second and fourth leading causes of death in Singapore, accounting for nearly 32% of all annual deaths in 2005.

    Thankfully, medical science is making rapid and continued progress with new diagnostic and treatment methods. It is thus heartening to know that heart disease is preventable and treatable. Recognising cardiac risk factors early is important as preventive measures can be taken to minimise any cardiovascular risks one may have.

    Every individual should take responsibility for his / her own health, by being aware of the risk factors and early signs and symptoms, by going for proper health screenings and, most importantly, by leading healthy lifestyles.
