Insight on Rising Heart Attacks


Although it may not sound as terrible as it is, cardiologists are observing a dramatic rise in sudden cardiac mortality in India, with young individuals suffering the most. Over 25,000 people have died in India from heart attacks over the past four years, and over 28,000 over the previous three.

In India, there were 19,238 heart attack-related fatalities in adults between the ages of 30 and 60 in 2020. The number of heart attack deaths in this age group increased by more than 6% between 2020 and 2021. In India, 2,541 persons aged 18 to 30 died from heart attacks in 2021 and 2,695 did so in 2020. This indicates that from 2020 to 2021, the number of heart attack deaths in this age group declined by 0.057%. In India, a key contributing factor to heart disease is a shift in lifestyle. Dr. Debabrata Roy, Honorary General Secretary, CSI and a Senior Consulting Interventional Cardiologist, said: “This is happening because of a significant change in lifestyle – lack of physical activity, eating a carb-rich diet – 86% of the diet is carbohydrates.”

Another factor contributing to the rise in heart disease is pollution. CSI specialists noted that young adults’ chances of developing CHD can increase when children are exposed to pollution while travelling to school. The risk of CHD will undoubtedly change if transportation uses clean fuel instead of conventional fuel.Higher mortality and cardiovascular disease risks have been linked to people who spend more time on screens and become more sedentary. In addition, socioeconomic inequality, unemployment, and poverty are causes of depression that raise the risk of CHD in the poor.
