ICES research video series: Dr. Maria Chiu on ethnicity and cardio risk

A new ICES study published in the journal BMJ Open is the first in Canada to examine ethnic-specific cardiovascular risk factor trends over time. The study found that in the 12-year period from 2001 to 2012, rates of diabetes doubled among South Asian men and nearly doubled among black women. And although obesity rates increased across all ethnic groups and sexes, the largest increase was observed for Chinese men, whose rate more than doubled.
