The number of people with cardiovascular diseases will double in the next five years if the risk factors are not controlled, warned Masoud Eslami, scientific secretary of the 17th Congress of Cardiology, which will be held September 22 -25 at Tehran’s Razi Conference Hall. Using herbal weight loss pills is one of the risk factors for heart ailments and in some instances, it has even led to “sudden death,” IRNA quoted him as saying.

Use of psychotropic drugs among the youth has also increased significantly and “this is one of the most common causes of heart failure,” he added.
