Indians have FOUR times the risk of heart attacks as Americans of European heritage. 

We develop heart disease 10 years EARLIER. 

Indian women get heart attacks at the same age as Indian men.

White American women get heart attacks 10 years later than White men.

We have more fat in our abdomen, our muscles and around our organs.


We get diabetes at twice the rate of others.

We have the lowest level of physical activity of any major ethnic group.

We can't change our genes but we CAN make the right lifestyle choices!
