Children should be encouraged to practice physical exercises before age 10

Without children healthy eating habits or do not practice physical activities are more likely to develop cardiovascular problems in adulthood.

Therefore, children's health is the focus of World Heart Day 2013, celebrated this Sunday, September 29, with the theme, "Take the road to the realth heart" (Take the path to a healthy heart). The campaign is the World Heart Federation, in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to the federation, cardiovascular diseases such as strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and hypertension, cause 17.3 million deaths per year worldwide, a number that will reach the home of 23 million in 2030.

According to the doctor of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology, Carlos Alberto Machado, prevention should begin in the first 10 years of life. "Because the disease that causes fat deposits in the artery wall increasing the possibility of the individual having a cardiovascular event, a heart attack, a stroke, begins in the first decade of life. The earlier we make a diagnosis, the treatment will be most appropriate and results. Therefore we emphasize the importance of early initiation of a better control of feeding and encouraging the practice of regular physical activity. "

Machado recalls that the attitude of parents is crucial for children and teens do not spend much time in front of the computer or TV and eat more fruits and vegetables.

To change these habits, the Brazilian Cardiology Society is conducting educational campaigns in schools, promoting healthy lunches and aware students and teachers.
