Abstract

Diseases of the heart and circulatory system, also called cardiovascular diseases (CVD), are the leading cause of mortality globally, both in men and in women. The “Europe Cardiovascular Disease Statistics 2017" reported that CVD is currently responsible for over 3.9 million deaths in 1 year, that is, 45% of all deaths. Specifically, CVD accounts for 1.8 million deaths (40% of all deaths) in men, and 2.1 million deaths (49% of all deaths) in women. By comparison, cancer-the next most common cause of death-accounts for just under 1.1 million deaths (24%) in men and just under 900, 000 deaths (20%) in women.
