May 31 is World No Tobacco Day, an annual awareness day to highlight the health risks associated with tobacco use. Tobacco use kills more than 7 million people around the world each year, and that number is predicted to grow unless anti-tobacco actions are increased. It causes many types of cancer, as well as heart disease, stroke, lung disease, and other health problems.
Bentham Open Publishers is in the forefront in creating awareness about this through the research in the journal:

Cardiovascular disease also named as heart disease involves many complications that are directly related to heart and blood vessels. These heart diseases refer to any sickness that upsets the cardiovascular system, primarily vascular diseases of kidney and brain, arterial disease and cardiac disease.
Whenever an individual is diagnosed with any of the cardiovascular diseases, they could possibly be treated in numerous different ways that includes; Reducing the amount of cholesterol and fat intake, daily exercising, by controlling the diet and the last and most significant course of action would be a drug therapy.

In the era of 1950’s, the effective and successful oral diuretics became accessible and rapidly altered the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. In mid 60’s, a course of agents termed as beta blockers or beta antagonists was discovered to treat numerous types of conditions that includes angina, anxiety, heart attack, hypertension and migraine.
The decade of 1990 brought about many innovations to treat the heart patients more effectively. These innovations led to the most important changes in the ability of physicians to treat the patients with angina and hypertension.
World Hypertension Day, observed on the 17th of May, is intended to increase awareness of the condition and issues surrounding it. Awareness of hypertension is considered to be vitally important, due to the number of deaths linked with associated heart attacks, kidney disease and strokes. There is also a perceived lack of awareness about hypertension amongst the general public.
