In brief: Start early
Young people are not familiar with the concept of cumulative risk.
The prevention of cardiovascular diseases would be most effective if started in childhood or adolescence. Unfortunately, it is held back by lack of knowledge about it i the adolescence group. The more is known about risk factors for heart disease and zprevention, the earlier it can be started.
