Heart Care Foundation of India warns India for new challenges in the year 2010



The world is going to face new challenges specially India, said Dr. K K Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India and E medinews.

1. Pot Belly Obesity: Urban India, including Delhi, is now facing a new epidemic of obesity and normal weight obesity. This problem is going to be of main concern in the coming years.  So called Pot Belly Obesity, it is characterized by selective increase in abdominal girth which makes  people prone for liver damage, heart blockages, diabetes and future paralysis. The culprit is eating refined carbohydrates including white rice, white maida, white sugar and not exercising. The disease is not only affecting the adults, but is growing like a wild fire in adolescents and young college students.

2. Multiple drug resistant diseases: It is going to be a big challenge in the coming years. The diseases involved are Typhoid, Tuberculosis, Malaria and AIDS. The treatment of non MR TB varies between Rs.1,000 to 2,000 but that of multiple drug resistant TB is in lakhs. The same is true for HIV / AIDS. A simple treatment of Malaria today costs less than Rs.100 but that of drug resistant Malaria may cost Rs.1, 000. It is high time steps are taken to stop drug resistance or the country will have to pay the price for the same. The current patent laws prohibit the Indian Pharma companies from making cheaper drugs.


  1. Have you given any kind of consideration at all with converting your main web site into German? I know a small number of translaters here that will might help you do it for no cost if you want to get in touch with me personally.

  2. My brother and I were just discussing this particular very topic, he is usually endeavouring to prove me incorrect. Your view on this is wonderful and just how I really feel. I just now sent my brother this site to demonstrate him your own view. Immediately after overlooking your blog I saved and will be coming back to read your posts!

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. I discovered your blog Monday and started follow your posts religiously. I have not commented on any blog just yet but I was contemplating I would love to. It is really exciting to actually contribute to a article even if it’s only a blog. I really don’t know exactly what to write other than I genuinely enjoyed reading through 2 of the posts. Nice articles indeed. I sure will keep visiting your blog daily. I learned quite a bit from you. Thx!
