Despite Singapore being 3rd in the world for life expectancy, we have the 2nd highest proportion of diabetics in the world and on average 16 people die from cardiovascular disease (heart diseases and stroke) in Singapore every day! In addition, we have one of the highest rates of obesity in the ASEAN.
