Medanta Medicity has started India Prevent, an NGO which will come up with a programme to eradicate heart attacks.

"The NGO will help cardio-vascular patients adopt a healthy lifestyle, including heart friendly nutrition, exercises, tobacco abstinence, weight management, hypertension, diabetes care and stress management will enhance corporate health," Trehan said.

According to doctors, India holds more than 60 percent of cardio vascular disease burn of the world. Deaths from cardio vascular disease in India is estimated to be 15 lakh per year.
