Location Influences Mortality Rate of Cardiovascular Diseases

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.
