MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Since the signing of Proclamation No. 1096 on January 9, 1973, the month of February in the Philippines has been designated as Philippine Heart Month. The proclamation aims to promote awareness of heart disease as a serious health concern among Filipinos.
Referring to a class of ailments that affect the heart and the blood vessels connected to it, Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) has been a longstanding global health issue. Accounting for the loss of 17.9 million lives annually, CVDs are usually caused by risk factors such as physical inactivity, health concerns such as diabetes and hypertension, alcohol and tobacco use, and an unhealthy diet. In the Philippines, CVDs have consistently remained to be the number one cause of death in the country, taking an estimated 50,000 lives each year.
To achieve better heart health, there are many practical steps Filipinos can take. One of these is adopting a healthier diet which has been shown to reduce the risk of CVD. In a new report that surveyed both Filipino consumers and Food and Beverage businesses, it was found that 99% of respondents have shown interest in adopting healthier eating habits. As more Filipinos are becoming increasingly health-conscious, there exists a need to create home environments that allow for people to easily practice and sustain healthier eating.
In line with Philippine Heart Month, to support Filipinos committing to living better lives, Philips Domestic Appliances has devised a kitchen innovation that allows for the creation of delicious fried foods made with up to 90 percent less oil – Philips Essential Airfryer XL.
