Heart disease: the number one killer of Malaysians since 1970s

Heart disease: the number one killer of Malaysians since 1970s

The statistics

Heart diseases were the third-biggest cause of death in Malaysia in 1950. By the 1970s, they have become the number one killer and remained so since (except in 1980). In 2014, heart diseases killed 10,432 people or 13.5% of all deaths in Malaysia.

Cardiovascular (relating to the heart and blood vessels) disease is responsible for one-quarter of all hospital deaths in Malaysia. Moreover, Malaysian acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients are relatively younger at 58.5 years old when compared to registries from more than 40 other countries. In the Americas and Europe, the figure is at 66, while Thailand reports 65, Middle East at 56, and 60 in India.

One out of four heart attack patients in Malaysia are less than 50 years old.

What are heart diseases? What causes them?

There are no shortage of online resources on heart disease. MedicineNet.com explores this topic in great detail, and in digestible nuggets. Below are excerpts, paraphrased.

Heart disease refers to various types of conditions that can affect heart function. They include:

  • Coronary artery heart disease – affects the arteries to the heart.
  • Valvular heart disease – affects how the valves function to regulate blood flow in/out of
    the heart.
  • Cardiomyopathy – affects how the heart muscle squeezes.
  • Heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) – affect electrical conduction.
  • Heart infections where the heart has structural problems that developed before birth.
  • Like any other muscle in the body, the heart needs an adequate supply of blood to provide it oxygen to fulfil its role – pumping blood to the rest of the body. When one or more coronary arteries narrow, it may make it difficult for sufficient blood to reach the heart, especially during exertions, such as exercise. This could cause the heart muscle to ache, just like any other muscle in the body. If the arteries continue to narrow, it may take less activity to stress the heart and provoke symptoms.

    If a coronary artery becomes completely blocked – usually due to a plaque that ruptures and causes a blood clot to form – blood supply to that area of the heart may be lost, causing the heart muscle there to start dying. This is called a myocardial infarction (myo=muscle + cardia=heart + infarction=tissue death), or heart attack in layman’s term. If not swiftly treated, the affected part of the muscle cannot be revived. It dies and is replaced by scar tissue. Long term, this scar tissue will decrease the heart's ability to pump efficiently, and may lead to ischemic cardiomyopathy (ischemic=decreased blood supply + cardio=heart + myo=muscle + pathy=disease).

    Are you at risk?

    IMAGE: 123RF

    Heart diseases are not caused by one single factor. There are several risk factors that increase your chance of developing heart disease. Knowing your risks is the first step to avoidance.

    Factors that put people at increased risk for heart disease are:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Family history of heart problems, especially heart attacks and strokes
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Heart Disease: Control and Awareness is among the topics featured at the 1st Penang Medical Expo & Malaysian Healthcare Policy Conference (PMEX 2017), to be held at Setia SPICE Convention Centre on 10-12 November 2017. PMEX 2017 is organised by the Penang State Government and Penang Convention & Exhibition Bureau (PCEB) in collaboration with Penang Centre of Medical Tourism, Penang Institute, Invest Penang and Malaysia Medical Association, Penang Branch.

    PMEX aims to serve as a platform for all interested parties from health-related sectors to communicate, exchange ideas, formulate solutions and create a healthcare network in Malaysia.

    Education has also been one of the primary factors taken into consideration when choosing a country to migrate for the family.

    For holders of Australian Provisional and Permanent visas, dependent children are entitled to free education under the Australian Government up to year 12.

    The Australian National Education is voted 4th best education in the world in 2017 based on their well-developed public education system.

    For a financially-able middle and upper-class Malaysian, quality education is often pursued through international schools and institutions.

    An average Malaysian would have to spend up to RM1.4 million over 12 years of education for each child attending one of the top 5 international schools. Given that a typical Malaysian family has an average of 2 children, these figures are doubled and will come up to as much as RM2.8 million for 12 years of education.

    This savings of up to RM2.8 million that most families have calculated ahead of time, can then be allocated as an investment for a large property in a suburb in Australia where the top state school is located.

    AMA has hundreds of proven and outstanding winning records in facilitating investors with their business expansion and investments plans into Australia.

    Chelliah is an expert in legislative migration and handling complex cases, he is a skilled strategist and also a well-known media commentator.

    With a 100% success track record, Chelliah has over 40 years of working experience with the Australian Commonwealth Government Immigration Department making AMA one of the longest serving migration agents in Australia.

    Overseas Investment Projects Open, Australia Ready For More Malaysian Investors

    Australia has been a migrating destination most sought after by Malaysian investors for many years.

    Driven by the country’s economic and political stability that offers diversity of opportunities, education and human rights protection, Australia is ranked by UNDP (United Nations Human Development) as the second-best country in the world for quality life following their “Human Development Index” statistics assessment.
    [1]

    Australia one of the most medically-advanced country

    Australia is also in the top 10 of most medically-advanced countries in the world with over US$5.5 billion invested in their medical research, which ensures better medical assurance and treatment quality. [2]

    Better and more trusted law equity

    One of the top reasons that makes Australia one of the best choices for migration is their better and more trusted law equity. Australia is best known as a country that spends every dollar of its tax-payers money on the well-being of its citizens.

    4th best country for education

    Education has been one of the primary factors taken into consideration when choosing a country to migrate for the family. With Australia ranked as 4th best country in the world for education [3] many have made it one of their top migrating destinations for the betterment of their children’s education.

    Though national standards were implemented in 2014, each state is tasked in managing their own education system to ensure its quality education is up-to- par with their high Human Development Index.

    One of the best countries for Business and Investment

    In Australia, the state government has zero interference over the conduct of private businesses, another plus point for business migrants choosing Australia as their preferred investment destination.

    With its strong, sustained economic growth, Australia has opened up more projects that target overseas investors, intending to expand their business and migrate to Australia.

    Migration into Australia is made even more appealing by its cultural diverse and beautiful natural environment, its world-class sporting facilities as well as an enviable lifestyle.

    Australia also tops a one of the best countries for retirement [4] showing an increasing numbers of migration by successful investor opting to settle down and retire in Australia.

    The Australian Migration Agents Pty Ltd (AMA) invites qualifying business owners and investors to a cost-free seminar. This seminar will allow you to understand and strategize your business and investment as a gateway to obtaining Australian Permanent Residency in Australia.

    There will be discussions on the latest Commonwealth government migration regulations, eligibility rules and policies on State Nomination, types of visas and details on projects available for overseas investors.

    Eligible investors will be expedited for a meeting with State Nomination Body to discuss their intentions.

    Presenting at the seminar is a prominent Australian Migration agent with over 27 years of practice hands-on experience, CEO of Australian Migration Agents Mr. Robert Chelliah.

    Exclusively made available for seminar participants is a question-and-answer session with Western Australia Investment and Business Specialist Mr. Hermann Steeger.

    Through AMA they will assist you in your business strategizing and expansion into Australia, providing a one stop platform, step by step guidance and assistance to the applicant and their family from beginning to Post Arrival Support Services (Final and settlement stage for successful applicants.)

    Chelliah added,

    “Now appears to be the best time for investors to truly ride on these investment opportunities before the Australian Department of Immigration again revamps their migration legislatives.”

    Malaysia’s 14th General Election: THE BIG ISSUES

    Malaysia’s 14th General Election: THE BIG ISSUES

    ANNOUNCING NEW BOOK!

    The book is yours for FREE if you subscribe or renew your Malaysiakini subscription for 1 year at RM200 from November 1 to 30.

    *Terms & Conditions Apply

    ABOUT THE BOOK

    Malaysia’s 14th general election will no doubt be fought between a Barisan Nasional coalition that boasts its sixty years of “stable rule” and a Pakatan Rakyat coalition calling on the electorate to “save Malaysia” from the BN’s kleptocracy. Malaysian voters will likely be treated to tirades about current scandals including 1MDB, as well as past scandals, now that the former Prime Minister Dr Mahathir has joined the Opposition. But what are the big issues of this election?

    This book, a compilation of the author’s recent writings, discusses the important issues confronting Malaysian society today. If any sustainable democratic progress is to be made in this country, it is crucial that voters are informed and demand that candidates and their parties clarify their stand on these issues well before Election Day. The author, Kua Kia Soong concludes with an alternative programme for Malaysia that is both inclusive and progressive – ‘Manifesto of the 99%’ by The Left Coalition, to transcend the years of corruption, neo-liberal capitalism and lack of democracy. Failure to learn the lessons of the last sixty years of BN rule will condemn the country to a further dysfunctional future for the vast majority of Malaysians.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR

    Dr. Kua Kia Soong is a director of SUARAM. He was arrested under the Internal Security Act during “Operation Lalang” in 1987 and detained for 445 days without trial. Upon his release in 1989, he helped to found SUARAM (Suara Rakyat Malaysia), the leading human rights organization in Malaysia.

    Together with other civil rights activists, he joined the Opposition Front in 1990 and was elected Opposition Member of Parliament for Petaling Jaya from 1990 to 1995. He was prisoner of conscience for a second time in 1996 when he spent seven days in prison with other activists for organizing the Second Asia Pacific Conference on East Timor which was disrupted by a mob from the ruling coalition.

    He was the Principle of the New Era College, a non-profit tertiary-level institution run by the Chinese education movement (2000-2008); Director of Huazi Research Center set up by the Malaysian Chinese community (1985-90) and Academic Adviser to the Independent Chinese Secondary Schools (1983-85).

    Kua received his BA Econ (1975), MA Econ (1976) and PhD in Sociology (1981) from Manchester University, UK. He was a lecturer in sociology at the National University of Singapore in 1978-79.

    What The Readers Say

    w

    Dr Ariffin Omar, Former lecturer at Universiti Sains Malaysia

    “This timely book by Dr. Kua Kia Soong will not only stand the test of time but will remain a classic reference for years to come… It will be a hard struggle for Malaysians to take back the country from the hands of corrupt and indifferent politicians. Yet we must fight on and Kua has given clear pointers of the issues that we must confront and resolve.”

    w

    Fuad Rahmat, Business FM

    “Finally, an honest and critical look into what Malaysians can expect for the next general elections. Kua writes with verve and profundity, raising difficult questions but always in the end grounded on the conviction that a better world is possible. He speaks truth to power. Look no further for the right balance of academic inquiry and accessibility.”

    w

    Gayathry Venkiteswaran - Centre for Independent Journalism

    “Kua’s book is a must read for his critical and valuable analysis of the political, economic and social landscapes shaping Malaysia. He challenges the neo-liberal framework that has defined the policies of both the ruling government and opposition political parties, and offers a very much needed inspiration for the way forward.”

    Appeal for lighting up a Ranau village

    Appeal for lighting up a Ranau village

    Appeal for lighting up a Ranau village

    Public Appeal

    To raise fund for a hydro project that can bring light to a remote village in the interior of Sabah, Kg Pakolen, Ranau-some 5 hours drive from the state capital Kota Kinabalu. The hydro project is aimed at generating 7.5kw to cater for 20 houses in the marginalised village. Since most urbanites will complain loudly even if we suffer black out for a few minutes we hope that you can feel for the deprivation of these villagers who have to live with it for decades!

    Villagers’ Effort

    Some of the villagers had tried to design and install their own hydro -but failed to go beyond providing for a few houses and for limited time of the day. They therefore request outside help-which we responded. up to 1/3 of Borneo’s villagers live without lighting from main grid electric supply.

    Progress of Project

    We have conducted 2 recce trips to collect data on the water source and the villagers so far. We have come out with a design, a budget-and now it is time to raise the fund so we can purchase the material needed, fabricate the hydro machine, and pay for logistics to send material to the village. We call upon all caring Malaysians to help us bring light to these dark villages around the country-so, in the long term, all citizens are able to access this very basic amenity!

    How you can help:

    1. Donation

    The budget for the project is RM45k. It will only take 500 donors to chip in Rm90.00 each to reach the target! Let’s start from today! To donate please bank into our official account:

    Lightup Borneo PLT; Public Bank, Account number: 3182753709

    We will update readers of the collection daily to keep you updated on our progress!

    2. Volunteer

    You are welcome to volunteer for the full 4 day installation or part of it to join villagers in:

  • Providing labor(installing pipes, wiring), villagers will not be enough to handle the job by themselves;
  • Provide logistic support. eg transport, cooking etc;
  • Do documentation etc.
  • We can pick up volunteers who fly in at KKIA airport. We will transport volunteers from KK or Ranau to go to the village and return.
    Accommodation will be at a small community hall, a couple of villagers’ house and camping.
    Meals will be provided to volunteers – but volunteers need to take turn to cook or form a cooking team.
    What to bring for volunteers: sleeping bag, raincoat, warm cloth, tracking shoes, insect repellent, torch light, power banks/batteries.

    3. Promotion

    Feel free to repost/share/forward this appeal to all your friends/social media so that we can beat the deadline to raise the fund needed to purchase the material/pay logistics for the project!We hope that Malaysians can come together to further our campaign to bring light to dark communities around the country.

    Light for all! All for light!
