Migration is one of the most acute problems within the last ten years and due to economic and political changes, situation will be even worser. This reality has already an impact on the mortality due to non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular pathologies. Within new European Union members, it will lead to an increasing by 18% cases in 20230 and consequently an important financial burden.
Migration is a lifestyle-associated problem that can be prevented through integration of the new members in the society, with using different lifestyle medicine interventions which respects their own traditions.
