Due to rapid industrialization, urbanization, and globalization, the lifestyle of a modern man has become unhealthy. Modern man has become sedentary, takes unhealthy diet, consumes tobacco, and has psychosocial stress, as a result of which lifestyle-related or non-transmittable diseases have turned into the main source of mortality and morbidity throughout the world, including developing countries. About 1.7 million Indian hearts stop beating every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Smokers can cut their risk of having a heart incident to the level of non-smokers within 15 years of quitting. About 12 percent of those experiencing heart attacks in India are below 40, and it has been observed that there is 15-20 percent increase in strokes in the 25 to 40 age group.
