Dr Anil, a cardiologist of the Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Centre (MCVTC), said those who visit hospitals on a daily basis and whose ailments could be easily treated through small preventive measures were the main force behind writing the book. “I have tried to make it simple, precise and scientific.”

Similarly, Dr Bhagwan Koirala, executive director of the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, said the book will help people prevent various diseases.

“This is the kind of a book that needs to be in each household,” said Dr Koirala. “Also, this would be a reference book for high schools too.”
