World Health Day 2023
World Heart Day 2023: Advocating For Heart HealthAt Accellacare, World Heart Day 2023 takes on heightened importance, as the global surge in cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) underscores the urgency of heart health. Join us as we spotlight heart health's significance and renew our dedication to transformative research.
With 17.9 million lives claimed by CVDs annually, they stand as a leading cause of global mortality, necessitating awareness, lifestyle changes, and early intervention. Our hearts tirelessly pump life through our bodies, impacting overall well-being. CVDs stem from multiple risk factors, including poor diet, inactivity, smoking, and excessive alcohol use.
As a Clinical Research Organization, we're committed to uncovering novel approaches for heart disease detection, management, and treatment. Our collaborations fuel groundbreaking research, leading to innovative therapies.
This World Heart Day, we reiterate the importance of adopting heart-healthy habits:
- Healthy Eating: A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Physical Activity: Regular exercise can help maintain a healthy weight and lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels.
- No Tobacco: Smoking is one of the leading causes of CVDs. Quitting can dramatically reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Limit Alcohol: Excessive alcohol can raise blood pressure levels and the risk of heart disease.
- Stress Management: Chronic stress may lead to behaviors that increase heart disease risk, such as smoking, overeating, and physical inactivity.
