CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition.

Edited by: Sara Stanner and Sarah Coe
A report of the British Nutrition Foundation Task Force
Chaired by: Professor Keith Frayn

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of early death and disability across the world. The major markers of risk are well known, but such markers do not account for all cardiovascular risk. This new comprehensive Task Force report examines the evidence for emerging and novel risk factors, and their relationship with diet and nutrition.


About the report

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors covers everything from epidemiology to genetic factors, to inflammation and much more – offering invaluable advice on reducing risk factors and preventing CVD.

This new report:

  • Authoritatively reports on the link between emerging aspects of diet, lifestyle and cardiovascular disease risk
  • Focuses on novel risk factors of CVD, including the human gut microbiome and fetal and childhood origins, and how it can be prevented
  • Features recommendations for interventions and future research
  • Includes references, commonly asked questions that summarise the take-home messages, and an online glossary


Who will find it of interest?

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors is an important information resource for those working in the field of cardiovascular health or involved in making decisions about health policy. It will be of interest to a broad range of health professionals, the food industry and those who disseminate about the effects of food and health.
