FAISALABAD: 

Stress caused by economic and social issues and greasy food with little exercise expose people to high blood pressure and cardiac diseases.

Speakers said this at a seminar here on Sunday. The seminar was held to raise awareness about precautions to avoid heart diseases. The seminar was jointly organised by the Drug Information and Poison Centre, College of Pharmacy and Government College University, Faisalabad (GCUF). GCUF Vice Chancellor Prof Zakir Hussain chaired the seminar.

Hussain said one of the easiest ways to prevent cardiac diseases was to adopt a positive attitude and helping others. This will reduce worries in one’s life. He said anger and haste might be harmful to heart. He said malnutrition and substandard and greasy food added to the risk of heart disease. He also called for taking a balanced diet.

“There is a need for creating awareness among people on preventive measures,” Dr Habib said. He also stressed the need for exercise and monitoring blood pressure.

Talking about risk factors linked with heart diseases, he said tobacco use, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, physical inactivity, stress and unhealthy diets all posed a serious threat to heart.

Prof Iftikhar Hussain Bokhari, Prof Muhammad Zubair Siddique and Imran Qadir also spoke on the occasion.

    I must appreciate the efforts of The Vice Chancellor GCUF, Dr. Zakir Hussain, who with a dedicated devotion and determined distinction always tries to do his best to uplift the level of the University. A lot of transformation activities have been implemented under his supervision and University has taken a turn around in the light of the ongoing repeated paradigm shifts and reshifts.

    I have already included the Dengue Awareness Seminar held under his supervision in my health blog http://gabahealthtips.com.

    He is certainly a dynamic personality.
