Created by the World Heart Federation, World Heart Day (Sept 29) is held each year to inform people around the globe that CVD, including heart disease and stroke, is the world’s number one killer, and highlights the actions that individuals can take to prevent and control CVD. While modern medicine and advancements in medical technology are attempting to reduce the yearly death toll, World Heart Day also seeks to educate people that by controlling risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity, at least 80% of premature deaths from heart disease and stroke can be avoided.
