CVD mortality falls in US, but remains high in some areas

ASNC SmartBrief | May 17, 2017

Cardiovascular disease mortality rates in the US fell to about 253 per 100,000 people in 2014 from 507 per 100,000 in 1980, and regional disparities are shrinking, but there is still a substantial difference between the counties with the highest and lowest death rates due to hypertension, poor blood flow to the heart and poor blood flow to the brain. The disparities uncovered by the study, published in JAMA, suggest more can be done to prevent CVD, said Dr. David Goff of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Reuters (05/16)
