  Philips supports health conservation efforts on World Heart Day

(Dubai, UAE) -
Royal Philips, a global company in health technology and honorary partner of the World Heart Federation (NYSE: PHG) and the Amsterdam Stock Exchange (AEX: PHIA), called on the world's population to make promises to themselves and their loved ones to keep their hearts healthy, in conjunction with "World Heart Day" - the annual initiative dedicated to promoting awareness of cardiovascular diseases and associated risks, which falls on 29 September.

Philips is participating in World Heart Day, along with the World Heart Federation, to encourage everyone to live up to their promises to keep their hearts healthy. These promises require a small lifestyle change that can significantly affect their heart health, such as having a healthy, balanced diet or exercising for 30 minutes a day or quitting smoking. These changes can help reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease Bloody. The World Heart Federation seeks to encourage everyone to improve their heart health, as well as their support and encouragement to help others adopt these changes.

The pragmatic and fast-paced lifestyle has become an unhealthy diet. The consumption of foods can lead to high levels of calories, fat, sugar and salt, which in turn makes 39% of the world's adult population over the age of 18 years overweight. 13% of them are obese. These rates can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide, claiming more than 17.7 million deaths a year.

This is not the case in the UAE, where cardiovascular disease accounts for 30 per cent of all deaths in the UAE. 22% of cardiovascular disease deaths are attributable to acute myocardial infarction, heart failure is 6%, and hypertension is 5%.

Philips and the World Heart Federation are encouraging all residents of the UAE to live up to their promises and protect their hearts during the 2018 World Heart Day and beyond. A promise that everyone can take part in sustaining to achieve the ultimate goal of "heart health for all".
