Bhuma Nagireddy Dies Of Heart Attack

Nandyala: Bhuma Nagireddy, YSRCP MLA in Andhra Pradesh Assembly, died of heart attack on Sunday morning. He breathed his last at a hospital here after the doctors tried for more than two hours to bring into consciousness. His wife Shobha Nagireddy expired a few years ago in a car accident.

Bhuma Nagireddy was elected to Lok Sabha three times. He was elected to AP Assembly in 2014 elections from Nandyala constituency. Their daughter Akhilapriya also is an MLA who was elected from Allgadda in a by-election caused by the death of her mother.

He won from Nandyala Lok Sabha constituency thrice in a row in 1996, 1998 and 1999. He lost to PV Narasimha Rao in 1996 and later won in the by-election after PV vacated the seat. He lost the election in 2004 and left the TDP. He joined PRP.

Both Nagireddy and Akhilapriya had defected to the ruling TDP about a year ago. It was reported that Nagireddy was keen in seeing his daughter become a minister. When Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu offered to make Nagireddy a minister, the latter asked Naidu to take Akhilapriya into the Cabinet. Nagireddy suffered a heavy heart attack in the wee hours when he was shifted to a local hospital at Allagadda. Then he was taken to Nandyala for better treatment.

Akhilapriya is in deep sorrow after losing both the parents at young age. Nagireddy did not recover from the shock of Shobha’s death. The Budget session of AP Assembly has been postponed by a day. Both the Houses would be adjourned on Monday to meet on Tuesday after paying tributes to Nagireddy. Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is about to reach Allagadda. Opposition leader and YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has expressed his deep condolence to Akhilapriya. The family is very close to YS family.

Heart attack cases registered in India are high

29th September is world heart day :  Heart Health is a 365 days Commitment

Lata Jain

Every human on the planet Earth seems to be busy given escalating demand at work coupled with long working hours that we’ve become hard pressed for time to look after their well being and also the health of the family. This inevitably is taking a toll on our bodies. Lack of exercise, a poor diet and unhealthy habits invite stress leading to heart and other cardiovascular and non-communicable diseases (NCD).

World Heart Day, observed on Sep 29 every year, is aimed at encouraging people to reduce their cardiovascular risk and promote a heart-healthy planet. This year’s World Heart Day focuses on creating heart-healthy environments.

According to WHO report, number of deaths from hypertension, stroke, heart attacks and other circulatory diseases is on the rise. Globally, the number of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases increased by 41 percent between 1990 and 2013, climbing from 12.3 million deaths to 17.3 million deaths. Over the same period, death rates within specific age groups dropped by 39 percent, according to an analysis of data from 188 countries.

In India, 50% of death every year occurs due to Heat related diseases. Most issue of concern is majority of heart related diseases are recorded in youths. 30 percent of young people in the country are suffering from serious heart disease. In the age of competition, most of youth are suffering from stress.

We need to help impress upon people lifestyle changes that will help reduce risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking” Says Dr.Narsimhan a leading cardiologist  “More importantly, we need to hammer home the importance of screening for heart disease. Many people go to the doctor when it’s too late. Our goal is to make sure people have the tools to prevent heart disease and I believe we can make that happen.”

Your heart works year round for you, and you should work year round to keep your heart healthy. On World Heart Day, commit to learning more about cardiovascular disease and about the best ways to prevent it.

Stay calm, anger can trigger heart attack

Lata Jain

There was once a saint who felt like having a bottle of beer. He asked his disciples to get him one. When the shocked disciples did as they were told, the saint simply folded his hands and stared at the bottle.

Later, he asked his disciples to take it away. When one of them asked him, “What was it that you did?” the saint told him something that we all need to understand. He said, “I cannot control the feelings, the emotions, or the temptations but I can definitely control my actions.”

As long as I keep my hands folded, there is no way I can grab this bottle of beer, and even though I cannot control my temptations I can control my actions.

While anger is something we cannot control, what we do when we are angry is something that we definitely can control say the teachings of Buddha.

Anger can be uncomfortable. Our culture’s view of anger may contribute to our difficulties with this complicated emotion. We often regard anger as the ugly stepchild of emotions, making it less acceptable to express than sadness or anxiety.

Anger is a friend to heart attack. It might actually happen. And about 1½ percent of heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths are triggered by anger. A new analysis has found that outbursts of anger can significantly increase the risk for irregular heart rhythms, angina, strokes and heart attacks.

Researchers combined data from nine studies of anger outbursts among patients who had had heart attacks, strokes and related problems. Most of the studies used a widely accepted anger assessment scale; one depended on a questionnaire administered to patients.

They found that in the two hours after an outburst of anger, the relative risk of angina and heart attack increased by nearly five times, while the risk of ischemic stroke and cardiac arrhythmia increased by more than three times. The findings appeared in The European Heart Journal.

The researchers stressed that the actual likelihood of having an anger-induced heart attack remains small. Still, for people with other risks for heart disease, any increase in risk is potentially dangerous.

The senior author, Dr. Murray A. Mittleman, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, said that little is known about ways to prevent anger from causing heart problems. “Are there specific behavioral interventions that would be effective? Medicines?” he asked.

Many people believe the myth of “accumulating anger:” if they don’t express their anger, somehow it will “build up” and they will develop high blood pressure, have a heart attack or a stroke.

Bhagavad Gita, the holy book sums up clearly the different stages of degradation, which follow anger: “From anger springs delusion, from delusion arises confusion, from confusion proceeds destruction of intellect and in consequence of destruction of intellect, the person perishes.

Concepts in modern management and self-improvement techniques also recognize the need to be clear headed and equanimous even in those situations which may be provoking by being proactive and not being reactive. Challenges and injustice lead to anger.  In this concept is in-built the need to channel, transform and transmute anger to constructive, healthful and evolutionary purposes.

Stay calm, anger can trigger heart attack.
