Terming oily junk food and sluggish lifestyle to be gravest danger for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, doctors, including heart specialists, cautioned the target group of people against taking fatty diet and shying away from physical exercise.

Warnings were also given during the concluding session of the health checkup camp and a seminar on heart care organised by the local unit of the Rotary Club at Bajrang Akhara Hospital.

Ajay Jain and assistant governor Dr Ravinder Sharma presided over the inaugural and concluding session. Ahmedgarh DSP Rachhpal Singh Dhindsa was the chief guest.

Cardiac surgeon Dr Brijesh Badhan and Dr Lov Luthra led the panel of physicians.

Convener of the event Dr Rajiv Bhakoo said over 200 persons were examined for symptoms of cardiovascular ailments. Free ECG and blood tests of patients were also conducted.

Referring to observations made during the event, Dr Brijesh Badhan said a majority of patients were ignorant of symptoms, causes and consequences of heart attack, a tendency which normally makes the curable disorder fatal. He suggested that heart patients should get tests conducted regularly for various indicators from laboratories so that their physicians could suggest preventive measures to avoid heart attacks.
