  • Incidence rates were calculated using Poisson regression and adjusted for age, age2, sex, income, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, current smoking, and prevalent cardiovascular disease. Participants with a prior stroke (or CHD) were excluded from the analyses where the outcome was incident stroke (or CHD). 95% CI, 95% confidence interval; CHD, coronary heart disease.
