Secular Trends in Deaths From Cardiovascular Diseases
It’s good to know that the number of CVD deaths is decreasing, but let’s look at this a little closer. The authors contend that a 4.8% decrease in 24 years is “marked.” “Marked?” Billions in treatment. Billions in research. And we only get a measly 4.8% drop? This is advancement in medicine? From a LIFESTYLE disease? We should be ashamed, not touting the results. From what we’ve learned about prevention of CVD, this condition should be virtually eradicated. But alas!! Still a top killer of men and women.
