I am copyied a table from the INTER-HEARTINTERHEART study by Salim Yusuf. The numbers represent the increased risk
of baseline risk
without that risk
factor....in otherwords, if smoke, you have a 2.95x increased risk. Note that all risk factors combined add to a 129x increased risk, MUCH greater than any single risk factor alone. That is why is important to attack the whole problem, all its components, rather than choosing which ones to change. Good luck.
