Cardiovascular disease and stroke

Cardiovascular disease refers to a range of diseases that can affect the heart and blood vessels, such as heart attacks and stroke. The articles on this page aim to give you a more detailed understanding of the difference between angina or a heart attack, what silent heart attacks are, and what role nutrition plays in maintaining heart health.

Circulatory diseases, such as heart attack and stroke, are largely preventable through diet and lifestyle changes. While prevention is better than cure, it’s never too late to start putting your health first.
