1 in 4 Heart Disease Deaths Preventable

About 1 in 4 deaths of heart disease could be averted with better prevention efforts and treatment, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Heart disease is the leading killer in the United States; it accounts for nearly 800,000 deaths a year, equaling about 30 percent of all deaths nationwide.

The report looked at deaths occurring in people younger than 75 that could have been prevented by more effective public health measures, lifestyle changes or medical care. As many as 200,000 Americans might have survived a heart attack or stroke in 2010 if they had received screening and treatment for preventable causes of heart disease, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and smoking, the CDC report found.

The 2014 launch of key elements of the Affordable Care Act could help reduce avoidable deaths, according to CDC officials. The law is intended to provide better access to treatment for millions of uninsured Americans and routine coverage for preventive screenings. Read the full details here:

CDC: 1 in 4 deaths from heart disease preventable

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US and prevention is not complex. Healthy lifestyle habits, regular medical care and preventative medication can curtain the mortality figures substantially. The key is affordable healthcare, education for patients and the desire to lead a healthier lifestyle.
