The Cardiovascular Risk in Young Finns Study is one of the largest follow-up studies into cardiovascular risk from childhood to adulthood. The main aim is to determine the contribution made by childhood lifestyle, biological, and psychological measures to the risk of cardiovascular diseases in adulthood.

The main strengths of the Young Finns Study include its longitudinal study design with regular follow-ups and collection of a diverse set of carefully measured phenotypes, lifestyle measures and socioeconomic background information. The cumulative data allow testing the hypothesis that common diseases and disorders have their origin in early life.
