Effect of Diet and Smoking Intervention on the Incidence of Coronary Heart Disease
Improved hospital care has lowered hospital mortality from acute coronary heart disease (CHD). However, the goal of a sizeable reduction in the prevalence of CHD in young and middle age can only be achieved by postponing or preventing the disease. Intervention trials have been carried out in order to be able to demonstrate that such prevention is possible. These trials have not shown unequivocal results, except for the beneficial effect of antihypertensive treatment on prevention of stroke.
