|Abstract:||Cardiovascular diseases account for an appreciable proportion of mortality and morbidity. Urbanization increases obesity and reduces physical activity, which results in overweight, elevated blood pressure (hypertension), and blood lipids and diabetes. The possibility of genetic susceptibility and other environmental influences like cigarette smoking, alcohol and stress also have a role to play, therefore, it is essential to maintain body weight.|
