Heart Disease & Stroke

You might wonder why I post this news that I found from BBC.

Well, do you know that our body consist of 75% of water, last saturday when I was attending a class about water, I am told that our brain is consist of 90% of water, our blood is 85% of water.

These almost identical to our mother earth, which have 70-75% of water. One can imagine, once a person have dehydration then, all sough of illness would follow. My research told me that when a person have high LDL cholesterol would 1st cause the high blood presure then would have the artery
problem then stroke, all these are inter related.

To flash out the waste of the body is to consume enough filtered water a day. That is min. 8 glass of Filtered water to have great health.

Heart Disease

The UK has one of the highest rates of death from heart disease in the world - one British adult dies from the disease every three minutes - and stroke is the country's third biggest killer, claiming 70,000 lives each year.

Heart attacks occur when blood flow is blocked, often by a blood clot, while strokes are caused either by blocked or burst blood vessels in the brain. A range of other conditions, including heart failure, when blood is not pumped properly around the body, and congenital heart defects can also cause long term problems, and even death, for sufferers.


The heart pumps blood around the body carrying oxygen and other nutrients to the areas that need it. When this process is interrupted, or does not work properly, serious illness and even death can result.
The risk of heart disease is greater for people with poor diet, who smoke and do not exercise, and men are more likely to suffer from it than women.
A range of tests and treatments, including drugs, heart bypass surgery and transplants, exist to alleviate symptoms or save the lives of sufferers.


There are two types of stroke - those caused by blood clots in the brain and those that occur when blood vessels burst. In both cases, the brain is starved of oxygen, damaging or killing cells.
Sufferers are often left with difficulty talking, walking and performing other basic tasks. The chance of suffering a stroke is cut by eating healthily, quitting smoking and drinking less alcohol. People at risk of stroke are often treated with aspirin.
After a stroke, various drug treatments are available and rehabilitation is commonly used to improve patients' speech and movement.
