It is often assumed that cardiovascular disease is due to issues related to lifestyle. While lifestyle does contribute to the expression of cardiovascular issues, a genetic etiology to Marfan's syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and long QT syndrome have been shown. It is unclear as to what role genetics plays in hypertension and hyperlipidemia, although it is felt that genetics contributes to these pathologies as well.
