Prediction of Lifetime Risk for Cardiovascular Disease by Risk Factor Burden at 50 Years of Age
Wow. The difference in risk between those without CVD by age 50 compared with those diagnosed w/ CVD by age 50 is quite dramatic. The problem is that is remains difficult to get young people (i.e. under 50) to understand the dangers that their lifestyle is producing. It also makes you wonder what’s going to happen in the next few decades as our unhealthy moms have unhealthy children and these kids get raised in unhealthy households. It seems that each generation is noting the onset of chronic disease earlier and earlier.
