Description

A comprehensive, accessible summary of the latest research in heart disease risk factors

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is a major cause of early death and disability across the world. The major markers of risk—including high blood cholesterol, smoking, and obesity—are well known, but studies show that such markers do not account for all cardiovascular risk. Written by a team of renowned experts in the field, this comprehensive and accessible book examines the evidence for emerging and novel risk factors, and their relationship with diet and nutrition.

Fully updated throughout, Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition covers everything from the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, to genetic factors, to inflammation and much more – offering invaluable advice on reducing risk factors and preventing CVD. This new edition:

  • Authoritatively reports on the link between emerging aspects of diet, lifestyle and cardiovascular disease risk
  • Focuses on novel risk factors of CVD and how it can be prevented
  • Is accessible to all levels of readers
  • Features evidence-based recommendations for interventions and future research
  • Includes references, commonly asked questions that summarise the take-home messages, and an online glossary

Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition is an important book for researchers and postgraduate students in nutrition, dietetics, food science, and medicine, as well as for cardiologists and cardiovascular specialists.
