World Health Day – Fats

A diet that is rich in fatty foods is a contributing factor to cardiovascular disease, such as dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis. One of the main concerns with these diseases is the accumulation of fatty deposits in blood vessels. Although the symptoms may not manifest themselves clearly, blocked blood vessels can restrict blood flow and can cause incidents that are far from negligible.

Thankfully, preventing and delaying the onset of these diseases is feasible for all. Regular physical activity, adequate stress management, smoking cessation, and responsible alcohol consumption are among some of the key healthy lifestyle choices in lowering the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. Eating fresh food, and cutting down on the fatty, processed meals, is another method for preventing the incidence of these diseases.

Pharmacy professionals are equipped with the expertise and benefit from close proximity with patients to raise awareness about the potentially harmful consequences of cardiovascular disease.
