NEW YORK – For years, death rates from certain cardiac diseases and diabetes were going down, but now, new research shows more people are dying from these preventable conditions.
Deaths from common conditions like Heart Disease, Stroke, Diabetes and High Blood Pressure started rising in 2010.
The doctor who wrote the study says we are now losing ground in the battle against cardiovascular disease. He also said most death from these conditions are preventable.
Experts say obesity is the main driver in all of them. Analysts say the data only came from death certificates, which can miss finer details.
Researchers say more study is needed. The study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Associated.
