World Heart Day 2009

In conjunction with World Heart Day 2009 , a Heart Fair was held at the open field next to Woodlands MRT station yesterday and today.

The statistics are grim: Cardiovascular disease accounts for over 17.2 million annual deaths globally. In Singapore, 1 in 3 people dies of heart disease or stroke every year.

With many of our hours spent working, it is paramount that we practise good health habits during our working hours and to spend a part of our leisure time exercising and keeping diseases at bay.

My wife and I visited the exhibition and learnt many useful tips about cardiovascular activities and facts from the event.
