CARDIA Study Exposes Long-Term Stress as a Precursor to Cardiovascular Events

26 Dec 2023 • The Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study involving 3,401 middle-aged adults has revealed that individuals experiencing chronic stress (lasting ≥6 months) across various life domains faced a heightened risk of CVD events.

Intriguingly, neither self-reported physical activity nor social support emerged as significant modifiers in the association between chronic stress and CVD events.

Chronic stress was associated with risk of having a CVD event among middle-aged adults, due at least in part to clinical mediators. Studies should continue exploring positive psychosocial and behavioral factors that may modify this association.
