Better health care as important to heart health as avoiding unhealty lifestyle
Better health care as important to heart health as avoiding unhealty lifestyle (September 2, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Hamilton - Better health care is just as important as avoiding risk factors for heart health, according to a report published in the NEJM. Researchers studied over 150,000 people from 17 countries. They found that low income countries with the lowest risk factors for cardiovascular problems were actually at the highest risk of of heart attack and stroke and death, while high-income countries with the most risk factors for these issues were at the lowest risk of cardiovascular events and death. Researchers believe this proves that health care is just as important as lifestyle habits in maintaining heart health.
