Dr. Fekry El Deeb, a consultant interventional cardiologist at Zulekha Hospitals in Dubai, UAE has said a growing number of emergency cases brought in with heart attacks are in their 20s and 30s. He has therefore warned that it could develop into a national health problem if not quickly addressed, as cardiovascular diseases are normally associated with old people in their 60s and 70s.

Dr El Deeb believes lack of awareness of the risk factors like smoking, eating too much junk food, and lack of exercise is what has made young ones vulnerable to heart attacks lately. He said; “Young people think nothing bad can happen to them. It does, and the numbers are rising. It’s very serious; we are expecting this to increase in the next five to ten years.”

He advised young people in the area to watch their diet, quit smoking, and do more exercise.
