  • LIFESTYLE ADVICE TO REDUCE THE RISK OF CVD IS BASED ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
    • DIET
      • Scientific research shows a link between a diet high in saturate fats and an increased risk of CVD
        • Educates people about the risks of certain diets & encourages them to reduce their saturated fat intake
        • Food Standards agency encourages food manufacturers to label their food to show the amount of saturated fat in them
        • Studies show that obese people are more likely to develop CVD
          • Obesity indicators-BMI
            • If they are obese they then have the choice to reduce it & their CVD risk
            • Obesity indicators can monitor their progress
          • E.G. Diet or increase their activity level
            • If they are obese they then have the choice to reduce it & their CVD risk
            • Obesity indicators-BMI
              • Obesity indicators can monitor their progress
    • SMOKING
      • Scientific research has linked smoking to an increased risk of CVD
      • Now TV adverts and warnings on cigarettes say the risks about smoking

      • NHS gives free advice & prescribes nicotine patches
