I am Dr. Samanjoy Mukherjee. I want to talk about the expectations increased over life. We should actually thank medical science. But, it needs to be a cumulative effect on the Dr as well as on the patients to sustain this. What I see most importantly is that today our lifestyle has changed. All of us are suffering from the same issues. Being a Dr, I also suffer from the same problems. Lack of sleep and our eating habit which have changed like not having proper food that too on time and that has lead to an increasing number of cases to hypertension, coronary artery disease, stroke. All we can prevent by having medications to take care of ourselves.

It is very important for us to concentrate on our lifestyle. So, we should have adequate sleep. Yes, we all have stress in our lives. We should know how to tackle stress, we should also have our tests done where we stand once we are 40+. Now it is very important that you understand that it is only about 35% is in our hand regarding food. We should always concentrate that what is in our hand not on what is not in our hand. So, I request all t7he young people to refrain from smoking. Smoking is one of the disastrous things. And, apart from that have adequate sleep, eat in moderation. Avoid access to fat, sweets. So, have things in moderation. At times, people actually become dependant on alcohol and smoking which is something we should always take care of. And even alcohol, red wine especially good if it is consumed in moderate quantities. But it is very difficult to make people understand and they get into the habit. There is no end to the amount of consumption which actually becomes a poison.

So, anything which is a tonic in small quantity becomes a poison in large quantity. So, I request to all the youngsters to have a healthy lifestyle. Exercise every day, if not every day then at least 2-3 times a week. Keep yourself fit. Check the body weight doesn't increase. eat in moderation. Don't go for food moderation. You should always have home cooked food and have a good sleep. Don't get on to alcohol. On weekends, you can cheat but in moderation.

Thank You!
