Lifestyle and CVD literature

Looking for a quick reading option on the latest update in preventive cardiology?


The January-February issue of the EACPR literature review in the field of lifestyle and cardiovascular disease is now available

Interesting new material has been published rencently,especially on CVD risk and nutrition, some of them of extra interest:

  • Most politically important: the unexpected high drop in new cases of acute infarctions in countries which have applied the smoking ban
  • Most geographical: the puzzling link between geographical latitude and carotid arteriosclerosis
  • Most somniferous: do not sleep too long or you might run the risk of catching type II diabetes
  • ...and for junior doctors: being on call apparently increases your CVD risk?

Read these articles and more in the EACPR Lifestyle & CVD Literature vol. 14

We wish you a pleasant read!
