Abstract

Globally, death rates from cardiovascular disease are increasing, rising 41% between 1990 and 2013, and are often attributed, at least in part, to poor diet quality. With urbanization, economic development, and mass marketing, global dietary patterns have become more Westernized to include more sugar-sweetened beverages, highly processed foods, animal-based foods, and fewer fruits and vegetables, which has contributed to increasing cardiovascular disease globally. In this paper, we will examine the trends occurring globally in the realm of nutrition and cardiovascular disease prevention and also present new data that international nutrition knowledge amongst cardiovascular disease providers is limited. In turn, this lack of knowledge has resulted in less patient education and counseling, which is having profound effects on cardiovascular disease prevention efforts worldwide.
