Fifty-eight chapters, largely a compilation from papers read at the First International Conference on Preventive Cardiology, Burlington, Vt., August 24-28, 1964. Discussion of neural and neurohumoral, electrolyte, and steroid influences on myocardial structure and function, of epidemiology of ischemic heart disease in relation to smoking and exercise, and of preventive approaches with emphasis on European reconditioning programs. Heavy emphasis on need to employ controlled exercise as an empirical measure in prophylaxis despite lack of firm evidence for its value in this disease. This approach serves as a counterbalance to overemphasis on metabolic and hemodynamic factors in pathogenesis.
