There has been a significant increase in heart disease over the past 20 years. The research revealed that more than 55 million people in India are suffering from cardiovascular diseases. Shockingly, they have become the leading cause of death in India, representing 31% of all global deaths. The burden of heart diseases was preferably on the urban population, but now the incidence has changed. The rural people are highly prone to coronary heart diseases and strokes. Moreover, ischemic heart diseases accounted for around 15-20% of deaths in India.
