6). Note that both self-reported hypertension and diabetes likely underestimate the importance of blood pressure (BP) and glucose level substantially. Therefore, it is likely that these four risk factors account for about 80% to 90% of the PARs for MI. The addition of abdominal obesity (top two tertiles vs. 7%). 25), suggesting that modification of these aspects of lifestyle could potentially reduce the risk of an AMI by more than 75%. In Women and Men Similar odds ratios were recorded in women and men for the association of AMI with current smoking, raised lipids, abdominal obesity, composite of psychosocial variables, and vegetable and fruit consumption.

The PAR for low locus of control was 16%. 69]; this difference did not change substantially after adjustment for other factors. The PAR associated with sadness and depression was 9%. 2 The combination of all psychosocial factors—exposure to general stress, financial stress, stressful life events, depression, and low locus of control—resulted in an estimated PAR of 29% (22% to 35%) after adjustment for age, gender, geographic region, and smoking. Further adjustment for all risk factors (education and income, hypertension, diabetes, level of physical activity, waist-to-hip ratio, dietary patterns, alcohol, or raised plasma lipid levels) changed the PAR estimate to 33% (25% to 41%).

Three major dietary patterns were identified using factor analysis—Oriental, Western, and prudent (high in fruit and vegetables). Food items considered to be predictive (meat, salty snacks, fried foods) or protective (fruits and green leafy vegetables, other cooked or raw vegetables) of CVD were used to generate a dietary risk score (DRS). There was an inverse association between the prudent pattern and AMI risk. 001). The Western pattern showed a positive association with AMI risk. 001). The Oriental pattern, however, demonstrated no relationship with AMI.
