The Rapid Rise in Cardiovascular Disease in China

The Rapid Rise in Cardiovascular Disease in China

According to a study by Harvard researchers, China is facing an enormous problem with heart disease, brought on by lifestyle factors and smoking.

As the Chinese increasingly start adopting Western lifestyle habits, such as drinking soda and consuming junk food, obesity and heart disease rates are skyrocketing. In addition, the fat-phobic dietary guidelines in China only seem to exacerbate the problem.

Maybe the Chinese should stop copying the West, especially when it comes to our biggest mistakes, like smoking and low-fat diets?
