Thursday, February 16, 15:09
The number of cardiovascular patients in Armenia has grown by 30% in
the last five years, while the mortality rate among such people has
risen by 50%, Director of the Preventive Cardiology Center Parunak
Zelveyan said during a press-conference on Thursday.
He said that such patients are becoming younger.
“40% of all disabled persons in Armenia are people having heart
problems and 70% of the latter are of able-bodied age. If we want to
have a healthy society, we need a state program to fight cardiovascular
diseases,” Zelveyan said.
He said that in Armenia cardiovascular diseases are cured no less
efficiently as in Europe.
“Healthy low cholesterol diet, active lifestyle and optimism are the
key guarantees against heart problems,” Zelveyan said.
