Book Summary of Know Your Heart: The Hidden Links Between Your Body And Politics Of The State

The doctor’s advice is simple: eat healthy food, cut down on tobacco and alcohol, stay physically active and lose a few kilos, especially around the waist. The responsibility to heed the doctor’s advice rests with the individual. But is it actually true? Is it just the individual who is to be blamed here? Know Your Heart explodes the myth that an individual alone is responsible for his or her sickness, particularly heart disease and the underlying conditions like diabetes and hypertension. The book is not about risk factors but the causes behind them. What lies behind consumption of unhealthy diets? Why are we becoming physically inactive? What’s fuellingthe rise in tobacco consumption? Investigations reveal shocking details. It’s the Indian state which is fuelling the risk factors for heart disease in India to a great extent. Narrow political interests, faulty state policies, along with corporate greed, are boosting heart disease in the country. Read this wellresearched book to help your heart beat stronger and longer.
