Could obesity lead to heart attack? | Dr. Girdhari Jena | CARE Hospitals

Dr. Girdhari Jena, Clinical Director at CARE Hospitals, talks about how obese individuals require more blood to supply oxygen and nutrients to their bodies, which causes an increase in blood pressure. He also says that their bodies will also require more pressure to move this blood around. High blood pressure is also a common cause of heart attacks, which are sadly more common for obese individuals. Every year, World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September. This day was first announced by the World Heart Federation to make people around the world aware of cardiovascular diseases and heart health.
