On World Heart Day, there are concerted media campaigns to help alert the people of many nations that heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world. The fact is that most heart-related disease might have been prevented were it not for smoking, poor diet, obesity, and other out of control risk factors.
World Heart Day events held every year around the world include public concerts, sports matches, walks and runs, physical fitness sessions, and educational exhibits.
