ADOPT AN ILLNESS LITERATURE REVIEW 4
Cardiovascular illness can affect any American. People with lower social economic status have
a higher risk to develop a heart disease than those who have more wealth and those who are more
learned. According to a current study done by UC Davis, he wrote an online book in BMC
cardiovascular disorders. He stated that the risk persists with long-term progress in tackling
traditional risk dynamics such as high blood pressure and smoking. Peter Frank a UC Davis
professor stated that a being less advantaged in the education and also being poor is a factor that
leads to cardiovascular diseases. Refereeing to the data from the Atherosclerosis hazard in
community studies, writers of the present study gave out a report that 12000 individual's age 45
to 64 years living in areas such as North Carolina or Minnesota. Members report their education
and income levels in 1987 are assessed for heart disease diagnoses and that changes the
possibilities of having risks such as blood pressure and cholesterol risks.
Other groups that are very vulnerable to cardiovascular heart diseases are racial. The elderly
people in the society, the homeless, the people having HIV, those with persistent health
conditions and finally those with very vital mental illness are among the sensitive social groups
who can acquire the disease very easily.
To begin with, the mentally disabled, homeless people and the people having the HIV have
trouble eating (Mann ,2015). They eat what they have at the table not minding their diet. This
increases the chances of one suffering from the cardiovascular diseases. Heart disease affects
mostly ethnic groups in the United States especially the black Americans, American Indians and
Pacific Islanders. Very many Americans are at the risk of acquiring the disease and
unfortunately they barely acknowledge that when they are experiencing the disease. Other
medical conditions can put one on the verge of having a heart disease. These medical conditions
include diabetes and excessive alcohol.
