From January to June of 2022 (and in previous years), ischemic heart diseases were  the leading cause of deaths in the country,   with 48,728 cases or 18.5 percent of the total deaths. Reason behind this is that many Filipinos may have ischemic episodes  and heart attacks without knowing it, as  it has no prior warning. It is even called “silent ischemia” or “silent killer.”

In addition, many  are not aware that we can reduce the risks through healthy lifestyles, healthy diet and exercise. If we Filipinos choose the 10 Kumainments as our top health priorities, we can save more -- not only for pregnant women and children but adults as well.
