The authors of this paper contacted us to highlight that in Table 4 an error resulted in one set of relative risks (ischemic stroke) being switched for men and women. This does not affect the analyses, which used the correct values, and only affected the presentation of inputs in this table. A corrected version of Table 4 highlighting the values that were switched and a clean version of the corrected Table 4 are provided below: Corrected Table 4 with switched values highlighted:
