Description
Heart disease is the single leading killer in the UK and globally, is responsible for considerable disability, and involves several important modifiable risk factors, such as smoking, diabetes, and elevated levels of cholesterol and blood pressure. The occurrence of heart attacks depends on the complex interplay of genetic make-up, environmental factors and chance. Understanding the interplay of ?nature? and ?nurture? in heart disease should contribute to important advances in: (i) explaining the biological chain of events that leads to a heart attack, (ii) effectively targeting existing measures to prevent disease, and (iii) developing lifestyle programmes for ...
