Abstract

It is widely believed that if only people ate more healthily, the current pandemic of coronary artery disease would be much reduced. But how can this relatively simple message be got across? If proof were needed that there is still much to do, just take half-a-dozen cardiologists out to lunch and see what they choose from the menu! Someone who thinks he knows part of the answer is Prof. Roberto Ferrari, from Ferrara, in northern Italy, Past-President of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). He believes that much dietary advice is far too solemn and the cardiovascular community needs to loosen up and make the business of healthy eating much more fun. He comments: ‘Dieting is generally linked with unhappiness, and that is what we should avoid. If we can achieve the “happy diet” people will be much more willing to keep to it’.
