Coronary Artery Disease

1-in-3 men have some form of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association. An estimated 2.8 million men experience stroke each year and hypertension is common in younger men. Routine check-ups are important to monitor heart health.

Potential Modifiable Risk Factors for Addressing Genetic Risk for Cardiovascular Diseases

A Mendelian randomization (MR) study, published in Nutrition, Metabolism & Cardiovascular Diseases, identified 11 modifiable factors which associated with genetic risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). A previous genome-wide association study using data from the Coronary Artery Disease Genome-wide Replication and Meta-analysis plus Coronary Artery Disease Genetics consortium’s 1000 Genomes-based genome-wide association meta-analysis identified 15 modifiable…
