"A Change of Heart" is a detailed account of the revolutionary
Framingham Heart study -- which, over the years, has provided
conclusive evidence that cardiovascular disease is largely the
result of measurable and modifiable risk factors. First begun in
1948, not long after Franklin Delano Roosevelt succumbed to a
massive stroke, the study of over 5,000 citizens of Framingham,
Massachusetts, changed the course of medical history. The lessons
learned in Framingham allow each of us to control our risk of heart
disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death in the
United States. Here is a clear-eyed and intriguing assessment of
the achievements of this study and of its continuing importance to
our health today.
