In a nutshell: Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found black people and women have greater odds of CVD risk factors. The study looked at population attributable risk (PAR) changes for five major preventable cardiovascular risk factors – high cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes. The combined PAR for all five risk factors stayed the same for black people while falling for white. Diabetes and high blood pressure was higher in black people and women while white people saw a drop over the 10 year study.
