Heart attack and deaths due to it are becoming a matter of concern for Mumbaikars. According to Dr. Prafulla Kerkar of KEM Hospital, the matter of great concern is that a large number of those who die of heart attack are youth. Talking about the world level, the number of people who died of heart attack has increased all over the world. The number of deaths due to heart attack is the highest among the youth.
