The mortal rate due to heart diseases occupies a very high percentage worldwide. Heart diseases are caused mainly by contraction due to arteriosclerosis of the coronary arteries which provide oxygen and nutrition to the heart, resulting in a worsened blood flow. They are considered to be most likely caused by one’s lifestyle such as diet and exercise, and therefore, they can be prevented by improving the lifestyle.
