Essentials of Nutrition

By Vassilis Vassiliou, Population Science and Public Health Section Chair

Preventive Cardiology

Can nutrition help achieve a healthy heart? A question that many of us ask, or get asked, very frequently!

You want to learn more?

Come and join us in this session organised by the Population Science and Public Health Section where experts in the field discuss diets for a healthy heart (V Vassiliou, UK; C Guerreiro, PT), the good ones, the bad ones and the ugly ones! We go from fasting, to veganism and paleo and debate whether these are myths or science (P Marques-Vidal, CH; D Panagiotakos, GR)? We also discuss chocolate and wine! Are they the forbidden joy? (T. Lusher, UK and A. Michalidou, AU). And we finally touch the difficult issue of whether we can actually manage to create a healthy food environment. (P Parwani, USA and A Cassidy, UK). The discussion is coordinated by the past chair of the section Prof. Monique Verschuren, NL.

We can all learn from this session and we hope that you join us there- we will be there too… “on site” virtually, to respond to any chat questions you might have!

The session "Essentials of Nutrition" is taking place on 16 April at 10:55 CEST online at ESC Preventive Cardiology 2021.
