Heart attack statistics
The Dutch model's sudden death alerts us to review the cardiac arrest statistics. Every 37 seconds, an adult dies in America due to cardiovascular disorders. The Texas Heart further elaborates that in teens it is mainly hereditary. It begs the society to pay attention to their health like smoking, high blood pressure, junk food consumption, obesity, etc. It can have adverse effects not only on the unhealthy individual but also on his/her genes.
