We evaluated weight loss among 623 over-weight (body mass index [calculated as weight in kilo-grams divided by the square of height in meters] 25)middle-aged(aged30-49years)and605overweightolder(aged 50-65 years) adults in Framingham, Mass. Sub-jects were classified first according to amount of weightlost over 4 years: (1) weight changed by less than 1.8 kg(stable weight), (2) lost 1.8 to less than 3.6 kg, (3) lost3.6 to less than 6.8 kg, and (4) lost 6.8 kg or more. Wealso classified weight los...

Objective— Studies have reported mixed findings on the association between physical activity and subclinical atherosclerosis. We sought to examine whether walking is associated with prevalent coronary artery calcification (CAC) and aortic calcification. Approach and Results— In a cross-sectional design, we studied 2971 participants of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Family Heart Study without a history of myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass grafting, or percutaneous trans...

Objective Metabolic syndrome (MetS), characterized by abdominal obesity, atherogenic dyslipidaemia, elevated blood pressure and insulin resistance, is a major public health concern in the United States. The effects of apolipoprotein E (Apo E) polymorphism on MetS are not well established. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study consisting of 1551 participants from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Family Heart Study to assess the relation of Apo E polymorphism with the prevalence...

Background The American Heart Association (AHA) established recommendations based on 7 ideal health behaviors and factors with the goal of improving cardiovascular health (CVH) and reducing both morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease by 20% by 2020. Few studies have investigated their association with subclinical coronary heart disease. We sought to examine whether the 7 AHA CVH metrics were associated with calcified atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries. Methods In a cros...
