In the investigation of "Patients' perceptions of cholesterol, cardiovascular disease risk, and risk communication strategies" by Goldman RE, Parker DR, Eaton CB, Borkan JM, Gramling R, Cover RT, Ahern DK, posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers found that Complex explanations about cholesterol and CVD risk appear to be
insufficient for motivating behavior change. A cardiovascular

recognizing their CVD risk and, when accompanied by information about
risk reduction, may be helpful in communicating risk to patients.
