Myth: Heart disease affects only the old

KDAH

According to the Indian Heart Association, 50% of all heart attacks in Indian men occur under 50 years of age and 25% of all heart attacks in Indian men occur under 40 years of age. Increased consumption of processed and junk foods, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and a genetic disposition increase the risk of heart disease in young adults. #WorldHeartDay #indianheartassociation #hearthealthawareness #hearthealthmatters #heartdiseasemyth #mythbuster
