Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite efficacies of currently available clinical and pharmaceutical approaches for the control of CVD risk factors, it seems that designing and developing of population-based interventions reducing tobacco use, advocating of physical activity, reducing harmful alcohol use, and promoting healthy diet is a cost-effective, permanent way and could play a major role in reduction of the burden of CVD. In this study, we reviewed some population-wide interventional programs and some nutritional intervention studies designed to prevent cardiovascular disease among Iranian populations.
