Background: We hypothesized that subjects with a high level of perceived stress would be less likely to have ideal cardiovascular health (CVH).Methods: CVH was estimated using the 7-item tool developed by the American Heart Association. Perceived stress was measured using the validated 4-item Perceived Stress Scale at baseline and after 4 years of follow-up. Linear and polytomous logistic regression analysis were conducted.Results: 8914 volunteers (38% women) free from a history of cardiovascular disease and aged 50 to 75 were recruited in the framework of The Paris Prospective Study III between 2008 and 2012. At baseline, higher perceived stress was associated with lower global CVH score (regression coefficient of highest vs. lowest quartile of perceived stress: β: −0.20, p Conclusion: Our study demonstrates a clear association between higher perceived stress and lower CVH, in particular behavioral CVH, which has implications for CVD prevention.
