Data from the UK Biobank provides robust evidence that middle-aged offspring of longer-lived parents have markedly lower incidence of multiple cardiovascular conditions and lower mortality rates. Family history questioning of parental age at death may be helpful for assessing risk for a wide range of circulatory outcomes. However, further work is needed on longer-term outcomes and on formal risk modelling.
