Emami Foundation achieved the feat of conducting 100 Heart Camps through which more than 11,000 heart patients and their families have been educated and trained about “Heart Attack Prevention and Reversal Methods” over a period of thirteen years.
Since December 2005, Emami Foundation has been relentlessly conducting these camps under the guidance and tutelage of Dr. Bimal Chhajer, MD, Former Consultant of AIIMS, New Delhi to make people aware about the causes of heart disease and ways of preventing them in non-invasive manner through rectification of one’s lifestyle and diet.
To mark this occasion of the completion of the 100th Heart Care Camp, Emami Foundation in association with Vishwa Jagriti Mission, Kolkata will organize a special Health Exhibition titled “Heart Attack Proof” at Ananda Dham, 34A CN Roy Road, Picnic Gardens on Saturday, 8th of December 2018 from 11 am. On this occasion, Dr. Bimal Chhajer is also going to deliver a special public talk on prevention of heart attack from 3-5 pm on the same day.

Dr. Bimal Chajjer, Renowned Heart Care and Lifestyle Expert, Former Consultant of AIIMS, New Delhi and author of more than 70 books on heart and health care, informed that “Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer disease in India killing around 9000 people per day on an average. There are about 8-10 crore heart patients currently in India which is the highest in the world who if guided properly can save themselves from heart attack with 98% rate of surety through non-invasive manner. They only need to rectify their lifestyle and diet by cooking fat free meals, avoiding animal foods, stopping habits like smoking / consuming tobacco, practicing Yoga and walking at least for 35 minutes every day. These simple life practices should help these people to lower Cholesterol to 130mg/dl, Triglycerides to 100mg/dl, control Blood Pressure to 120/80 mm Hg and blood sugar to 6.5% HbA1c.”
