Americans Are Having Fewer Heart Attacks
While heart disease remains the No. 1 killer in the U.S., older Americans are having fewer heart attacks and surviving them more than ever before.
A new report found the number of people hospitalized due to a heart attack declined by 38 percent between 1995 and 2014 when looking at nearly 6,000 hospitals across the country. The improvements in health were evident across gender, races and socioeconomic status, and are likely due to improvements in treatment and recognizing the symptoms earlier. Some welcome positive news. To read more of these findings, head on over to The New York Times.
