Over 60 pct of Macedonian patients die from cardiovascular disease

Over 60 percent of Macedonian patients die as a result of cardiovascular disease because of malnutrition and lack of physical activity, according to the official data of the Macedonian Institute of Public Health.

In October 2017 the Macedonian Ministry of Health on the occasion of World Food Day announced that the ministry in cooperation with the respective inspectorate would engage to improve citizens' habits and overall health in terms of healthy nutrition.

Meanwhile, doctors in Macedonia underline that the Food Inspectorate should make stricter controls regarding the products sold in the stores on which few citizens are aware of.

Igor Spiroski, a co-worker in coordinating the activities of the Ministry of Health in Macedonia with the World Health Organization suggests that more work be done to raise citizens' awareness of the factors that cause overweight.

For Spiroski, the most problematic is the overweight, which is more and more present in children.

"Particularly worrying is the overweight that is increasingly present in children. This problem since childhood is passed on to adult life throughout life," said Spiroski.
