To examine the rationale for preventive nutrition intervention and the potential efficacy of nutrition-related risk factor modification on heart disease incidence, the cardiovascular disease risk and dietary profiles of Framingham (Mass) men and women, 30 to 79 years old (n=1798 and 1845, respectively), were compared with the Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for the Nation and used to project the 10-year incidence of coronary heart disease with and without lowering serum cholesterol levels.
Data for this report are derived from the 1984 to 1988 cycle III examinations of the Framingham offspring-spouse cohort.
