Urban lifestyle increases heart problems in women

Changes in urban lifestyles have led to a sharp increase in cardiac diseases among the youth and women, according to the findings of the "State of the Indian Heart", a compilation of cardiac disease trends by Fortis Escorts Heart Institute. The study suggests that the percentage of women undergoing coronary artery bypass surgeries has increased from 6 per cent in the late 1980s and early 1990s to 15 per cent in the past three-four years, an alarming increase of 150 per cent.
