Hara Mischal*

Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death worldwide. While traditional risk factors like high blood pressure, smoking, and obesity are well-known, there exist hidden risk factors that often go unnoticed. This article delves into the silent threats to cardiovascular health, shedding light on lesser-known factors that contribute to the rising CVD epidemic. Understanding and addressing these hidden risk factors is essential for effective prevention and management. Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) have long held the dubious distinction of being the leading global cause of death, claiming an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. While many risk factors for CVD are well-documented, such as smoking, high blood pressure, and obesity, there is a lurking menace in the form of hidden risk factors that often evade our attention. These hidden risk factors quietly contribute to the CVD epidemic, and understanding them is crucial for better prevention and management strategies.
