This project investigated genomic epidemiology of congestive heart disease, the clinical and non-invasive techniques for diagnosis and the modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors associated with the disease were explored. Trends in the morbidity and mortality of CHD revealed an increase in the disease frequency with minor drop in its’ trajectory into the twenty-first century. While the modifiable risk factors were discussed with suitable interventions, the non-modifiable risk factors demand prompt medical diagnosis and treatment if any. The genes incriminated were listed. The relevance of pharmacogenomics cannot be overstated in the age of genomic medical science. But by far most important is the consumption of food items rich in phyto-nutrients to maximize public health and minimize the impact of dangerous lipids in our diet.
