But it also shows that other factors must underlie the risk of CHD in many people. In fact, although the importance of the major cardiovascular risk factors (elevated blood cholesterol, cigarette smoking and high blood pressure) have been strongly substantiated and it is likely that they account for most cases of heart disease (Magnus & Beaglehole, 2001), it is also likely that other novel risk factors may account for a substantial proportion of cardiovascular disease cases.
