Just posted an intriguing article on two new genetic markers for CAD and one specifically for CAD that causes heart attacks! Anybody ever been tested for genetic markers for heart disease?

The cool part of the study is that it backs up my understanding that you can have heart disease but still avoid heart attacks. They are NOT the same condition!

Here is a link to the article.
