"There are two things that are quite important at the moment which were not that important when we did the North Karelia Project in the 1970s. The first is that the CVD problem which used to be a problem with middle-aged men is now a problem with older people and women. The second difference is that diabetes has become a major contributor to CVD throughout Europe."
