NEW BNF Task Force report - Cardiovascular Disease: Diet, Nutrition and Emerging Risk Factors, 2nd Edition

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. A new comprehensive Task Force report examines the evidence for emerging and novel risk factors, and their relationship with diet and nutrition. 

Findings of the Task Force report and answers to common questions about cardiovascular disease are also available to download here. 

A useful resource 'Helping to protect yourself from heart disease and stroke' is also available below.

Presentations from our speakers from the day of the Task Force Report Launch can be found attached below.
