018 : That Red Heart of Yours

Tuesday, 27th September

In conjunction to the World Heart Day on the 29th September 2011, I would like to give a little awareness to myself and readers about one of our precious organs, which without its beats, we are dead.

The heart. A heart of a human has 4 chambers and is myogenic. Myogenic means it works or beats without the need of stimulations. SubhanaAllah.. So, are you having a healthy heart?

For your information, cardiovascular diseases, diseases which are related to the heart, are the world's largest killers! How can the heart get 'sick'?

Logically, our health has a very close relation with the food we consume as the saying goes, "You are what you eat". Having unbalance diet is not good for our heart. Taking too much sugars would lead to diabetes and this disease will attack our heart. Obesity is also one of the factors which can cause us to have cardiovascular diseases. Cholesterol is essential for our body but the excess of it would bring negative impact. We do need fats to protect our heart but too much fats will harm the heart. Low density lipoprotein can cause coronary heart disease.

Taking a substance called tobacco, which can be found in cigarettes, can also jeopardize the heart. So, stop smoking and avoid yourself from being a passive smoker. Besides, stress and depression would 'sadden' your heart, just like how they make your pretty smiles on your face fade away. So, make sure you smile to get a 'happy' heart.

Hence, lets treasure this priceless organ before it's too late! Happy World Heart Day! <3
