“Prevention is better than cure, and many risk factors for heart disease are preventable,” said co-lead author Dr. med. Sagar Dugani, an internist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, in a prepared statement. “This study shows the effects of lifestyle on heart health in women of all ages and especially in younger women.”

“Diabetes is largely preventable, but it is a system-wide problem and we urgently need to research more strategies to address it,” added author Dr. Samia Mora from the Brigham Center for Lipid Metabolomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “These can be innovative lifestyle-based strategies such as community efforts, greater public health efforts, opportunities for medical targeting of metabolic pathways, or new surgical approaches.”
