It is unfortunate that 40% of deaths among the youth occur due to cardiovascular diseases, the main causes of which are air pollution, low physical activity and tobacco use, said Dr. Hafezi, head of Tehran City Council health commission.

Avoiding tobacco use, daily brisk walking for 20 to 30 minutes, avoiding stress and anxiety at the workplace and regular checkups play an important role in preventing heart diseases, ISNA reported.
