Location Influences Mortality Rate of Cardiovascular Diseases

According to a report by Dr. Jack Tu it was found that geography played a vital role in determining the risk factors, treatments//, and outcomes of heart disease for the more than 1.2 million Canadians.

Dr. Blair O'Neill, head of cardiology at the Queen Elizabeth II hospital in Halifax agreed to Tu statement that certain regions have the highest heart disease mortality rates due to the factors such as high smoking rates, high obesity rates, higher rates of diabetes, those who lead a very low socio-economic lifestyle and hypertension.

The study said that additional investments in understanding the determinants that are vital towards improving the cardiac health status of Canada s essential. Employment status and education levels play an important role in providing health benefits to Canadians across the country. Tu said that it was shocking to find that cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in Canada contributing to about 37 % of all deaths in the country.
