Improvements

NEW YORK, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The upcoming episode of the "Charlie Rose Science Series" on PBS will focus on heart disease, one of the leading global killers, which claims almost 900,000 lives each year in the United States alone. Co-host Sir Paul Nurse, Nobel Laureate and President of Rockefeller University and a panel of leading experts in cardiology and heart disease will join Charlie Rose. Guest panelists will address prevalence rates among men and women, the biology and genetics of the disease, the most common risk factors and how to reduce them, medical, surgical and interventional therapies, and steps that individuals can take toward a heart-healthy life style.

The ninth episode in the 12-part Science Series, which is sponsored by Pfizer Inc, will begin airing on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 on more than 200 PBS stations across the country.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, killing an average of one in four. Worldwide, heart disease claimed the lives of nearly 17.5 million people in 2005, making it the greatest cause of mortality across the globe. According to the Centers for Disease Control, heart disease, which is an umbrella term that includes all aspects and types of coronary and cardiovascular problems, and all subsequent related problems, will cost an estimated $258 billion dollars in health care services, medications, and lost productivity.

"Heart disease is a crucial concern worldwide, and one that scientists have come a long way in understanding." said Charlie Rose. "Though a number of factors, such as anti-smoking campaigns, improved diet and exercise recommendations, and the development of effective drugs, is improving disease outlook, much remains to be done."
