OBJECTIVE We tested the hypothesis that short telomere length is associated with increased risk of myocardial infarction, ischemic heart disease, and early death. METHODS AND RESULTS We measured leukocyte telomere length in 2 prospective studies of 19 838 Danish general population participants from the Copenhagen City Heart Study and the Copenhagen General Population Study. Participants were followed for up to 19 years for incident myocardial infarction (n=929), ischemic heart disease (n=2038… CONTINUE READING
