If public health data from prime research centres in our country are to be believed, number of heart diseases in India will surpass that in any other country by the year 2020. It is slowly reaching an epidemic proportion in India. However, there is still a lack of awareness and many misconceptions regarding heart ailments. One such lack of awareness is the difference between Heart Failure and Heart Attack.

This World Heart Day - September 29, 2017, we give you an infographic shared by Cardiological Society of India ( CSI ) on the 'Difference between Heart Failure and Heart Attack'. CSI is a public health advocacy consultancy that aims at spreading awareness about various critical diseases and currently working towards raising awareness on heart failure - a silent killer.

Corporate lifestyle, increasing stress levels, bad eating habits and lack of physical activity seem to be the main culprits of increasing burden of heart diseases in the country today. Since almost everyone is prone to this, it is important to take preventive action as a society, for which knowledge and awareness is very important.
