It has been estimated that at least 85.6 million American adults have at least one cardiovascular disease. Generally, mean levels of cardiometabolic risk factors were demonstrated to be below clinical cutoffs for high-risk. However, these effects are expected for BMI. Furthermore, research has consistently shown secondary factors affect these results, including socioeconomic status, childhood health, and tobacco use.
