Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) encompasses a constellation of diseases related to the heart and/or circulatory system. Two primary risk factors for CVD include obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, both of which have continued to be on the rise over the past few decades. It is evident that regardless of the advancements in scientific knowledge of the disease and the improvements in diagnosis and treatment, more research is necessary to further our understanding of CVD.
