In the United States, lessons from William Kannel and colleagues in the Framingham Heart Study and from Lester Breslow and colleagues in the Alameda County study gave us early insights on the impact of behavioral choices on health outcomes. 6 Similarly, important insights about the influence of social circumstances on health prospects have come from McKeown and, more recently, Britain’s Michael Marmot. 7 Drawing on the power of the extensive studies of the past generation, we can now speak about our health prospects as being shaped by our experiences in five domains: genetic and gestational endowments, social circumstances, environmental conditions, behavioral choices, and medical care. 8 The health of populations is the product of the intersecting influences from these different domains, influences that are dynamic and that vary in their impact depending upon when in the life course they occur and upon the effects of preceding and subsequent factors. 9 Our predispositions to health or disease begin to take form at the moment of conception, embedded in our genetic blueprint for construction of the proteins that give form to our sizes, shapes, and personalities and even to the biologic limit of our life expectancies.
