OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
“Technology, evidence and deliberation for clinical decision is one important message that will be deeply debated at the conference, as will Brazilian and international guidelines, and what cardiologists must avoid in their clinical practice,” said Professor Angelo A V de Paola, President of the Brasilian Society of Cardiology. “Additionally, in the past 20 years the percentage of men who are overweight in Brazil tripled to around 54 percent. Now, 48 percent of women are overweight and one in three children between the ages of five and nine is overweight. Cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes are increasing at an alarming rate and we will discuss the need for cardiologists to be more proactive about promoting a less sedentary lifestyle and urging patients to following a healthy diet.”
“Often people with low incomes choose less expensive foods that are unhealthy,” said Prof. Pinto. “In Brazil you have the additional problem of a lack of exercise. Only 15 percent of Brazilian adults are active in their free time. More than 40 percent of Brazilian men and over 50 percent of Brazilian women get insufficient exercise. This combination of lack of exercise, unhealthy, fatty foods and dramatic weight gain is causing a dramatic increase in cardiovascular disease in the country.”
“The most experienced cardiologists in the world will meet to discuss the latest developments in cardiovascular care and we can put it in the context of the Brazilian population,” said Prof. de Paola. “We look forward to finding ways to combat the problems we have seen in the past few years.”
