High blood pressure: the leading cause of heart disease | Dr. Tanmay Kumar Das | CARE Hospitals

Dr. Tanmay Kumar Das, Consultant Cardiologist, talks about how high blood pressure can damage your arteries by making them less elastic. He further says that this decreases the flow of blood and oxygen to your heart and leads to heart disease. In addition, the decreased blood flow to the heart can cause chest pain, also called angina. 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. With the global campaign for World Health Day, we should aim to bring people together in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and encourage them to follow heart-healthy practices. Your heart is an important part of your body.
