An American Heart Association policy statement calls for clinicians to increase efforts on individual and population-based levels to get people to make better lifestyle choices that can reduce cardiovascular disease. The study authors called for a multidisciplinary approach and systemic changes to prevent cardiovascular disease "by preserving cardiovascular health from childhood and by treating health risk behaviors to help more individuals improve their cardiovascular health into older ages." The report is in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
