American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Deaths from heart disease have declined dramatically over the last few decades but young people, particularly women, are not sharing equally in that improvement, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Using data on adults age 25 and older, researchers tracked annual percentage changes in heart disease death rates between three time periods: 1979-1989, 1990-1999 and 2000-2011. Death rates in adults 65 and over declined consistently over the decades, with accelerating improvements since 2000.

Improvements in death rates have slowed in people under age 55, particularly among women. (Amiercan Heart Association)
