Risky Business: New Survey Suggests Many Americans Live Dangerously, Even When They Say They Aren't 'Risk Takers'

In addition, the American Medical Association (AMA) passed policy in July to increase education among physicians on the importance of appropriate aspirin counseling for the prevention of heart attacks and recurrent stroke. Encouraging physicians to incorporate aspirin counseling into patient care when appropriate may help reduce the prevalence of heart attack and recurrent stroke, said the AMA.

The new survey results were released today in conjunction with the World Heart Federation's World Heart Day 2008, a global advocacy campaign aimed at increasing public awareness and promoting the use of preventive measures to reduce the incidence of CVD. World Heart Day 2008 will be observed on Sunday, 28 September. This year's theme - "Know Your Risk" - focuses on improving understanding of personal risk for cardiovascular disease, including hypertension. As part of the campaign, heart health screening and other activities for the public are being planned in over 100 countries worldwide.

"On the occasion of World Heart Day, this survey shows there still is much work to be done when it comes to risk factor education, and encouraging behaviors that can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease," said Wes Cetnarowski, MD, Senior Vice President of Global Research and Dev
