Age, the single greatest risk factor

"Any guesses as to what the greatest single risk factor is for heart disease? ... It's age. Age trumps everything. In this sense, atherosclerosis is an “integral” disease (in the calculus sense of the word) — meaning it's a disease of compounding injuries, as I painstakingly went through above. Age = persistent exposure to LDL-P/apoB."
