Summary CVDs, including coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke, currently represent the major causes of mortality and morbidity all over the world. In Europe, CVDs are responsible for 43% of deaths in men and 55% in women and for 30% of all deaths before the age of 65 years. CVD burden could be substantially reduced by early diagnosis and appropriate measures, since atherosclerotic lesions may be substantially improved in response to measures taken. CVD results from a combination of genetic and...

Summary Plate waste in hospitals refers to the served food that remains uneaten by patients. High levels of plate waste contribute to malnutrition-related complications in hospital, and there are also financial and environmental costs. Plate waste is typically measured by weighing food or by visual estimation of the amount of food remaining on the plate, with results presented as the percentage by weight of the served food, or by calculating the protein, energy or monetary value of the waste. Re...
