Mumbai doctors believe in practising what they preach. If they recommend a 40-minute run or walk for you, they do it themselves, too.

Prevent lifestyle diseases For Dr Bhupendra Gandhi, consultant nephrologist, restricting ‘SOS’ is a must to lead a life that is healthy and disease-free.

He emphasises, “We have to start early. Youngsters should keep a watch on their daily diet.”
