Hyderabad, Sep 29 (UNI) Save the Young Heart Foundation with association with its partners organised its third edition of 5K Run on Sunday to celebrate ‘World Heart Day’. 2500 people took part in the run at Gachibowli stadium attended by Telangana Minister for Labour Ch Malla Reddy, Film Producer Dil Raju and Parliament Member G Ranjith Reddy.

On this occasion ‘Save The Young Heart’ app launched by the Minister.

On filling up the self-assessment questionnaire the user will get updated about his risk of getting heart disease.

According to the Indian Heart Association, "50 per cent of all heart attacks in Indians occur under 50 years of age and 25 per cent of all heart attacks in Indians occur under 40 years of age.

Population living in cities is three times more prone to heart attacks than people living in villages.

Speaking on the occasion, Campaign Founder and Senior Cardiac Surgeon Dr Anand Agarwal, said “Heart disease is increasing in younger generation with a significant risk in both males and females. More and more number of young Indians are suffering from coronary artery disease, owing to their poor lifestyle, and if this continues the future looks even more dangerous.

Ten years back, we at Malla Reddy Narayana Multispeciality Hospitals hardly saw any young patients with heart attack but now, we get many cases in the 25-35 age group with heart attack in our emergency, he said.

Eating healthy food, reducing stress levels and regular work outs will work as the pillars against the risk of heart attack. Walking is one the best way to keep your heart healthy. The risk of heart diseases is more in men when compared to women, the Cardiac Surgeon said.

This Event was supported by Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust, Sailotech, Infor, Singhania’s, Alembic, Orbicular, Aleor, MR Steels, Life Insurance Corporation of India, Ordinance Factory Medak, Malla Reddy Narayana Multispecialty Hospitals, Agra Mahila Manch, Jan Urja manch and Ola Cabs.
