Many people don't realise that cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in Poland. According to the most recent statistics, as many as 30% of adult Poles have high blood pressure (hypertension). Why is this percentage so high? Mainly because as many as 60% of Poles live an unhealthy lifestyle, and more than 20% are morbidly obese. No wonder that medical statistics do not reflect very well on us as a nation. Apart from the obvious modification of eating habits and lifestyle changes, is there any other way to avoid or substantially improve these statistics? Of course there is! One of them is heart screening!
