 Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death and physical impairment across the globe, affecting millions of lives annually. In general, CVD referred to as a set of diseases including arrhythmia, angina, stroke, embolism, and ischemia that occur in the vascular system, including cardiac and cerebral. As per recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) more than 30% of global deaths caused by cardiovascular diseases alone. The onset of CVD is multifactorial and challenging to diagnose precise risk factors. However, significant risk factors associated with CVD are obesity, unhealthy diet, hypertension, diabetes, and consumption of tobacco and alcohol.
