What causes heart attacks, strokes and other cardiovascular illnesses? -- Myocardial infarction or heart attack -- Blood pressure -- Cholesterol -- Blood clots -- Obesity -- Diabetes -- Smoking -- Diet -- Inflammation -- Statistics vs. biology -- Detection of early disease -- Secondary prevention -- A community approach -- A future free of symptomatic cardiovascular disease.
We all think we are well-informed about cardiovascular health. But is what we think we know really accurate? Here, a renowned cardiologist describes the biological processes leading to heart and blood vessel disease. He challenges the conventional view that risk factors, poor diet, and lack of exercise are the biggest culprits. Each of these widely-described risk factors is individually discussed and Dr. Cohn concludes that their role in affecting cardiovascular health is often overstated. He promotes a greater emphasis on an individual’s personal and largely inherited cardiovascular health by simple assessment of the function and structure of the arteries and heart. By identifying early disease likely to progress he advocates for early intervention, often with drug therapy, to slow disease progression and prevent symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
