Abstract

Good health is an asset in this modern scientific world. However since the first recorded history, diseases have been known to exist. Worldwide attempts to eradicate yaws, malaria and small pox have all been effective to varying extents, but still some diseases have to be explored and controlled. As we begin to control the majority of infective diseases newer ones crop up and of these coronary heart disease is man-killer number one today. Smoking out-weighs all other reported risk factors for peripheral vascular diseases. The average increase in death rate in smokers is 70 per cent more than that of non-smokers.
