Heart disease used to be uncommon in Asian populations. That is no longer the case. Recently, a new study has shown that there is an impending epidemic of heart disease that will overtake China and other countries in that region. The study had half a million subjects, and is considered scientifically sound.
The study in question looked at health and behavior from China to Australasia. It provides valuable insight into the future of health in this area. One thing that was found is that there has been a rapid increase in smoking. This and other factors have been greatly increasing chances of heart disease.
The heart is the center of your circulatory system. Your heart is basically the engine that pumps blood through the body. Blood is the material that brings oxygen to your cells. Clearly, having a strong heart and cardiovascular system is important.
