The correlation between diet, a hectic lifestyle and heart disease is known for the last few decades.


All that is worth cherishing begins in the heart, not the head. - Suzanne Chapin

The "Heart" has been the center of mankind from time immemorial.

'Mind is the partial side of men; the heart is everything’ says Rivarol.

But how many of us in our busy life, actually stop and think about our 'hearts', its physiological well-being and care about it as much as our emotional well-being?

"The schedule is crazy - it's all suitcases and hotel rooms and you just go nonstop. It's a crazy lifestyle, it really is." - Christina Aguilera - American Singer


Everyday someone young and successful dies of heart disease. Research has now shown the onset of heart problem is due to our modern lifestyle changes. The life we lead today is more stressful than that of our forefathers.

With the advent of processed and innovative fast foods and the influx rapidly of so many technological innovations like Television, computers, Internet and Multi Media our whole pattern of living has undergone such a drastic transformation that some of these changes have had a detrimental effect to our health. This has lead to the increase in the number of people suffering from cardiovascular and other lifestyle related diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. A balanced diet and healthy regime including exercise is the need of the hour to help us to live longer and to be happy.
