Although group-level effectiveness of lipid, blood pressure, glucose, and aspirin treatment for prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been proven by trials, important differences in absolute effectiveness exist between individuals. We aim to develop and validate a prediction tool for individualizing lifelong CVD prevention in people with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) predicting life-years gained without myocardial infarction or stroke. We developed and validated the Diabetes Lifetime-...

Earlier age at menopause has been associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), but the shape of association and role of established cardiovascular risk factors remain unclear. Therefore, we examined the associations between menopausal characteristics and CHD risk; the shape of the association between age at menopause and CHD risk; and the extent to which these associations are explained by established cardiovascular risk factors. We used data from EPIC-CVD, a case-cohort study...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study is to determine whether combinations of specific Life’s Simple 7 (LS7) components are associated with reduced risk for heart failure (HF). Background The American Heart Association recommends the concept of LS7: healthy behaviors that have been shown to reduce cardiovascular disease. Methods A total of 37,803 participants from the EPIC-NL (European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition–Netherlands) cohort were included (mean age 49.4 ± 11.9...

The association between intake of different dairy products and the risk of stroke remains unclear. We therefore investigated substitutions between dairy product subgroups and risk of stroke. We included 36,886 Dutch men and women. Information about dairy product intake was collected through a food frequency questionnaire. Dairy products were grouped as low-fat milk, whole-fat milk, buttermilk, low-fat yoghurt, whole-fat yoghurt, cheese and butter. Incident stroke cases were identified in nationa...

Background: There is uncertainty about the relevance of animal foods to the etiology of ischemic heart disease (IHD). We examined meat, fish, dairy products and eggs and risk for IHD in the pan-European EPIC cohort. Methods: A prospective study of 409,885 men and women in nine European countries. Diet was assessed using validated questionnaires, calibrated using 24-hour recalls. Lipids and blood pressure were measured in a subsample. During 12.6 years mean follow up, 7198 participants had a myoc...
