Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)
CVD is Australia’s and the worlds number 1 killer. One in six Australians are affected by CVD, someone you know or you yourself may have been touched by CVD.
Frighteningly, in recent years the number of people dying or suffering disability from CVD has been increasing for the first time in over 30 years. This is in part due to the increasing prevalence of ‘lifestyle diseases’ such as obesity and diabetes – major risk factors for CVD
CVD can affect anyone – man, woman, young, old – and over 90 per cent of Australians have at least one of its risk factors.
The risk factors that can be managed include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inactivity, obesity, diabetes, poor nutrition and excessive intake of alcohol.
Making lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and participating in regular physical activity can prevent up to 80 per cent of premature CVD, stroke and diabetes
