Alarming Findings

Monday, September 17, 2007

A total of 3.08 million people aged between 25 and 64 suffer from high blood pressure. This is the finding of a study conducted last year by the Health Ministry on chronic diseases.

Half of them were Malays, which made up 1.56 million people; Chinese made up 635,000 and Indians 244,000. Men made up of 1.64 million while women made up 1.44 million. The study showed 1.33 million Malaysians were diabetic; 56% of them were Malays.

A total of 736,000 Malays, 227,000 Indians and 155,000 Chinese were diabetic. Women made up of 717,000 and men 608,000. About 20% of Malaysians were overweight. The percentage of people suffering from chronic diseases such as heart problems, diabetes and cancer were relatively high in Malaysia.

I think we should now look at our health seriously. Majority of the diseases are from what we eat. Most of tips that I read stressing on moderate intake. Take more vegetable and fruits. Drink more plain water. Try to avoid oily food. Use virgin oliver oil if you're cooking.
