An international team of doctors (2.3 thousand experts from 133 countries) has calculated that about a third of all global deaths is due to cardiovascular diseases. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, briefly about it reports The American College of cardiology.
Among the countries with the highest number of deaths from cardiovascular disease included the States of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Middle East, South America, Black Africa and Oceania. The lowest mortality rates for this reason — in Japan, Andorra, Peru, France, Israel and Spain.
The researchers noticed that over the past five years, the process of reducing the number of such deaths in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and Western European countries has slowed.
To such conclusions the authors came analyzing the statistics between 1990 and 2015. So, in 2015, the world was more than 400 million people suffering from cardiovascular disease, and nearly 18 million deaths from them. Between 1990 and 2010 the average mortality rate for this cause declined (due to the increase in the quality of care in countries with high income), however, in the last five years has slowed progress.
For example, worldwide, in 1990, for every hundred thousand people, there were about 393 deaths from cardiovascular disease. This figure fell to 307 cases per hundred thousand in 2010, and over the next five years, the decline has slowed to 286 cases per one hundred thousand people.
Experts urge scientists and politicians to fight cardiovascular diseases, the main risk factors are high blood pressure, poor nutrition, high cholesterol, tobacco Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and obesity.
