Lee KW, Lip GYH. Effects of Lifestyle on Hemostasis, Fibrinolysis, and Platelet Reactivity: A Systematic Review. Arch Intern Med. 2003;163(19):2368–2392. doi:10.1001/archinte.163.19.2368
The pathophysiology of atherothrombosis in cardiovascular disease is complex and multifactorial. No doubt, lifestyle habits such as exercise, smoking, diet, and alcohol consumption may have significant influence on cardiovascular disease. As the hemostatic system is assuming an increasingly prominent role in the pathogenesis and progression of atherovascular diseases, this review evaluates the effects of lifestyle habits (or lifestyle modifications) on blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and platelet reactivity.
