In brief: Health and wellness
Difficult to calculate for an individual without knowing their other risk factors and family history, but they are definitely t higher risk than someone who exercizes and who does not smoke.
All risk factors are important, but smoking is particularly important in those who have a history of peripheral vascular disease or stroke.
