Bulletin of the World Health Organization 2002
Abstract:
Both the question raised by Claude Lenfant (1) and the discussion of it made stimulating reading. The crucial issue is whether populations really make serious attempts to change their lifestyle. Undoubtedly, there is a fair appreciation of the risk factors involved. We know we should not overeat; we should eat less fat and more plant foods, especially vegetables and fruit. People should also stop smoking, restrict their alcohol consumption, and considerably increase their level of physical activity. Yet the fact must be faced that there have been very few meaningful responses to the appeals made. Thus, in European populations, there has been generally no fall in fat consumption, which still supplies about 40% of the total energy intake. Moreover, rises in vegetable and fruit consumption have been barely significant.
