Q.2- Heart attack and stroke cause more deaths in the US than all cancers combined. Despite this sobering fact, the entire panel of CVD screening measurements such as blood pressure, serum lipids and glucose all together cost less than $300 whereas cancer screening with only colonoscopy and mammography alone costs over $3,000, a 10-time advantage. Knowing that atherosclerotic CVD is much more preventable than cancer, how can we address such a disparity?
