Although cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in the USA has reached a plateau during the last four decades, indeed even declining slightly in the last 20 years, CVD remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in both men and women in the USA and most western societies [1]. The projected total cost of CVD in the USA for 2008 was more than $500 billion and is expected to more than double during the next two decades, thus emphasizing the need for prevention and treatment of CVD [1]. Although much attention has focused on the leading CVD risk factors, namely obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), hypertension, dyslipidaemia and smoking, other factors may also be involved in the pathogenesis and progression of CVD. © 2012 The Association for the Publication of the Journal of Internal Medicine.
