Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for a third of all deaths. Three of four cardiovascular deaths and more than 80% of premature deaths attributable to non-communicable diseases occur in low-income and middle-income countries.1 Thus, preventive strategies to tackle premature mortality and, particularly, cardiovascular mortality represent a major public health goal not only for high-income countries, but also for low-income and middle-income countries. The most effective and sustainable preventive strategies should rely on healthy diet and lifestyle.
