For the CAC to be of benefit a person has to know what to do to decrease their risk. Most conventional doctors don't have much or anything to offer that significantly reduces risk. Dietary measures, other than low fat, are hardly ever mentioned. CAC can be a motivator but unless you know what to do about it it is of little value. I keep thinking about how if we all just followed a low carb real food diet we'd all be so much healthier. If getting your CAC score moves you along the road to healthier eating etc then it is worthwhile. If all it does is increase your stress level then it has not served any useful function and perhaps even made things worse. If it induces chronic stress you are in worse shape than when you were blissfully ignorant.
