Mysore/Mysuru: Noted Cardiologist from Bengaluru Dr. Vijayalakshmi Balekundri said that a deadly combination of ailments — Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol levels and Obesity — is the main cause of fatal heart attacks. She was speaking after releasing ‘Arogya Mitra’, a collection of articles written by Dr. S.P. Yoganna at a programme held at Suyog Hospital here recently.

Pointing out that we can become a Yogi only if we have good health and spirituality,  Dr. Vijayalakshmi, who is also a Medical writer, said that we should have control of our senses. Observing that women are getting distracted and are losing their own thoughts and ideas by watching TV serials, she said this has also led to increased obesity among women.

Suttur Mutt Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji, who graced the occasion, said that junk and spicy foods are destroying our health. Expressing concern that we have reached a situation where we have to  carry tablets and medicines whenever we go out, he said that the book, which has some very useful tips for staying healthy and fit, is a must read for everyone, as said by Star of Mysore Founder-Editor K.B. Ganapathy in his note at the end of the book.  Retired faculty Prof. Thirumalachar, writer Prof. C. Naganna, author Dr. S.P. Yoganna, Publisher D.N.
