But Consumers Are Still Window-shopping
Washington, D.C. – This holiday season, it’s never been easier to put a fuel-efficient auto on your shopping list. New government data released recently shows that automakers are offering more models that run on alternative fuels and use less gasoline.
“The good news for consumers is that competition among automakers is driving progress. Auto manufacturers are racing each other to bring fuel-efficient autos to market,” said Dave McCurdy, President & CEO, Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers. “When it comes to determining the success of energy-efficient technologies, consumers are in the driver’s seat. As automakers, our job is to develop and introduce vehicles that run on alternative fuels or deploy energy saving technologies.”

Dallas, TX – 2010–A new report, “Deaths: Preliminary Data for 2008,” released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), says that for the first time in 50 years, stroke has fallen from the third to the fourth leading cause of death.
“While these results will not be final until further analysis has been completed in mid-2011, the American Heart Association is heartened to see a continuing decrease in stroke mortality, which can be attributed in part to improved prevention, and in part to the improved quality of care for stroke patients by hospitals, including the increased use of clot-busting drugs known as thrombolytics and the provision of medications demonstrated effective in preventing recurrent strokes,” said Ralph L. Sacco, M.D., president of the American Heart Association and chairman, department of neurology Miller School of Medicine University of Miami. “However, there are still too many deaths, and more people and their families are living with the aftermath of stroke — physical disabilities, caretaker demands, lost income, and extensive health care and rehabilitation costs. There is significantly more work to be done in the prevention and treatment of stroke.” «Read the rest of this article»
