Genetics, lifestyle main causes for cardiovascular disease

Experts said that the risk of death from CVD is the same for women and men.

Every two seconds someone in the world dies as a result of cardiovascular (CVD) disease.

Experts in a media workshop entitled "New treatments for cardiovascular disease", organized by Bayer and held along the sidelines of the recently concluded European Society of Cardiology Congress 2018 in Munich, said the risk of death by HVZ is the same in women and men.

"This is partly due to a westernized lifestyle that contains less exercise and more junk food," says Professor Martin Cowe, Imperial College London and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist, Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK.

"There are perceptions that men are more susceptible to cardiovascular disease than women, but this is not the case," he said.
