Heart disease and type 2 diabetes could be prevented by taking a single pill in the future, if predictions by scientists prove true.

Both conditions, which are the leading causes of death and illness across the world, are linked by the same genes, a major study found.

Based on DNA data of more than 250,000 people, the research adds to the basic understanding of both deadly ailments.

The results, which uncovered seven new genetic mutations that increase the risk of both conditions, offer hope of a future treatment.
