... According to [21][22][23], smoking doubles the risk of stroke. A person smoking 20 cigarettes a day has six times the risk of stroke compared to a non-smoker [24]. For a person with high blood pressure, the risk to have a stroke is 5 times more than a smoker with normal blood pressure and 20 times more than a non-smoker with normal blood pressure [25]. ...
... Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains a major public health burden in England and Wales, causing 80,000 deaths in 2007 and chronically affecting about 3 million patients. Major inequalities have been described, with marked social and regional differences in premature mortality rates1234. The rate of mortality decline has usually been described in terms of overall age adjusted rates, and little attention has been paid to differentials in terms of age and socioeconomic characteristics . ...
... Coronary heart disease is the main cause of death in the United States and killing more than 370,000 people annually. In the United States every year almost 735,000 peoples have a heart attack and out of these 525,000 are first-time heart attacks & 210,000 people have already reported heart attacks [5]. In terms of productivity and morality, it would cost about $351.2 billion. ...
... According to the global and regional diabetes prevalence, around 9.3% (463 million people) of the world population had diabetes in 2019. The prevalence is expected to rise to 10.2% (578 million) by 2030 and 10.9% (700 million) by 2045, which contributes to 4.6 million deaths globally. 1,2 Diabetes is associated with significant morbidity and mortality in the 21st century, which poses a substantial challenge to the health care system. 1 Hypertension is a common comorbidity in diabetic patients. ...

... Many scientific papers and official public health documents report that the global prevalence of obesity, usually defined as a body mass index of more than 30, has increased sharply in recent decades. Despite successions of national and international policies to stem this trend (Gracia-Arnaiz, 2017), rates of obesity continue to rise, along with associated risks to health (Adamson et al., 2007;Allender et al., 2006;British Medical Association, 2005;Caballero, 2007;Department of Health, 2011;Department of Health & Department for Children, Schools & Families, 2008;Ells et al., 2015;Mulvihill & Quigley, 2003;Public Health England, 2020;UK Government, 2016). These apparently simple statements disguise the extent to which definitions, trends, and causes are contested within the medical and biological sciences and beyond (Bell et al., 2011;Lupton, 2012;Oliver, 2006). ...
... The continuous rise in the number of persons with diabetes follows the same trend as the number of persons who are obese in the UK. As such, cardiovascular and chronic diseases are partly attributed to overweight and obesity [34]. ...
... Cardiac illnesses are indeed the major cause of death in the globe, accounting for about half of all fatalities (around 50%) in Europe each year (Allender et al., 2008). Hypertension, lipid metabolism and blood platelet function (i.e. ...
... Moreover, the effect of Diabetes is modified by the effect of glucose concentration level for patients [30]. We found that the odds ratio of having CHD is highest at 1.249 (CI: 0.628, 2.485) when the glucose concentration level is high as of 150 units with diabetes cases which also supports the findings [31]. ...
... Las enfermedades del aparato circulatorio son en España, como en la mayoría de los países desarrollados 13 (probablemente lo continuará siendo los próximos años 14 ) la principal causa de muerte (124.126 muertes, el 32% sobre el total, en 2007 (1) ), la segunda causa de morbilidad hospitalaria y de años potenciales de vida perdidos (19% sobre el total) tras los tumores. ...
