Abstract

Preventing cardiovascular disease by lifestyle and therapeutic intervention is a broad topic, about which an enormous amount of research has been conducted and published. This chapter shall focus largely on the primary prevention of atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis. Although frequently confused, these are in reality distinct disorders, differing in their underlying pathophysiology. As such preventative therapeutic strategies are likely to differ.
