Heart Disease Declining

The CDC (National Center for Disease Control and Prevention) reports a decline in heart disease from 2000 to 2006. The details include a higher incidence in men than women and the states with the highest incidence are Kentucky, West Virginia and Louisiana. The age-adjusted mortality rate for heart disease has steadily decreased in the U.S. since the 1960s. The more recent decline in incidence is a result of public health and the longer trend in decreased deaths is due to medical care.
