The CDC says that 49 percent of Americans have at least one risk factor. Not good. 1980 Obesity levels in the US had remained between 12 to 14 percent from 1960 to 1980. It's also been suggested that the more sunlight you get, the better your cardiovascular health will be, as there are a number of physiological mechanisms triggered by vitamin D production through sunlight exposure that act to fight heart disease, such as increase in your body's natural anti-inflammatory cytokines; the suppression of vascular calcification; and the inhibition of vascular smooth muscle growth.

It happens all the time: * Every year over 700,000 Americans have just a first heart attack. Patients received either high- doses of Hcy-lowering vitamins (2.5 mg folic acid, 25 mg pyridoxine, and 0.4 mg cobalamin) or low doses that would not be expected to lower Hcy significantly (20 µg, 200 µg, and 6 µg, respectively). The value of analyzing angiotensin gene polymorphisms in altering the management and improving outcomes of patients has not been demonstrated in prospective clinical studies.

The body makes all the cholesterol it needs, so any extra cholesterol or fat in the diet causes plaque buildup inside blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease is a group of problems that occur when the heart and blood vessels aren't working the way they should. In patients with preexisting CVD, cardiac decompensation often coincides with this peak. Congestive heart failure or heart failure is one of the most common conditions affecting the heart.

Stress-management programmes have repeatedly been shown to improve not only subjective well-being but also risk factor levels and CVD outcomes. 199, 200, 358 In hostile CHD patients, a group-based hostility-control intervention may lead not only to decreases in behaviourally assessed hostility levels, but also to decreased levels of depression, resting heart rate, and cardiovascular reactivity to mental stress, as well as to increased social support and satisfaction with life. 359, 360 For women, specific behavioural group treatments may be useful for reducing distress. 348, 350, 361 Recently, a group-based stress-reduction programme for women was shown to prolong lives independent of other prognostic factors. 348, 358 Work reorganizations aimed at improving autonomy and increasing control at work may result in improved social support and reduction in physiological stress responses.
