Mumbai, India, October 24, 2021: Global pharma major Lupin Limited (Lupin) has achieved a significant milestone by setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for creating the Largest book sentence. The title was developed with 4,921 book copies to display the letters in the sentence ‘Heart Rate, Is it a Missing Link? (title of the book). This unique record was made possible by collating hard copies of the books in a structured manner under the supervision of an official from Guinness World Records, London.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), India accounts for one-fifth of the total deaths occurring from stroke and ischemic heart disease. An upward trend of an arrhythmic heart rate signals a larger health problem in most individuals. To draw attention to this critical health parameter, Lupin attempted this record to talk about preventive care and treatment strategies for patients with an elevated heart rate. The record was monitored by an adjudicator from Guinness World Records.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Sibal, President – India Region Formulation, Lupin Limited said, “We are delighted to set a Guinness World Records title which will help in raising awareness on Heart rate and its connection to well-being. Blood Pressure and sugar monitoring are prevalent the world over, however heart rate tracking needed to be one of the critical health indices as a measure of good health. Our endeavour was to bring this aspect to the fore amongst the medical fraternity and for this book to serve as a ready reckoner in India and overseas. We are thankful to our eminent cardiologists who participated in the making of this book and curating this event.”
