How many clinical notes or electronic medical records EMRs include relevant details on dietary habits? The gap between the importance of the problem, and the attention paid, is perhaps larger for nutrition than for any other factor in our health system. Yet, everywhere I have trained, worked and interacted with patients, providers and the public, everyone is hungry — starving — for accurate, evidence-based information on diet and nutrition.
Cardiologists should be the leading advocates for healthy food-based diet patterns for our patients, workplaces and communities. What would you consider is the next step nationally and globally toward better nutrition and cardiovascular health?
We must emphasize evidence-based dietary targets and policies. First, we need to move away from isolated nutrient and calorie targets and toward food-based priorities, emphasizing increased intakes of fruits, nuts, vegetables, vegetable oils, fish, yogurt and whole grains, and decreased intakes of refined grains, sugars, potatoes, processed meats and sugary beverages.
Two additives — salt and trans fat — should also be targeted.
We must also recognize that obesity is only one symptom of poor diet quality, and that diet influences cardiovascular and metabolic health through multiple other independent pathways. Second, we must deploy the full range of available policies to create healthier food environments — some of the most effective and cost-effective options include direct mandates to reduce sodium and trans fat and a framework for comprehensive dietary taxes and subsidies.
For the health services researcher, the book provides a comprehensive review of the available data and thought on any specific area to help guide future study and elaboration. For the policy maker, health care payor, administrator, or clinician with an interest in or need to know economic information, Cardiovascular Health Care Economics will provide excellent background and data to guide decision making.
