Heart disease is number one killer of mankind across the globe, albeit with geographical and racial inconsistency. It has been noticed that race and ethnicity do play a role in heart disease prevalence and some groups of people are at increased risk for heart disease and many do not respond well to certain treatments. people of Indian ethnicity have the highest rates of heart disease in the world, despite coming from a culture that shuns smoking, encourages a vegetarian diet and lacks many of the classic risk factors for the disease.
