This thread discusses the Content article: CDC - state-specific data on persons living with heart disease

A couple of interesting stats in this report.

I was amazed that 6.5% of people 18 or older have some form of heart disease - I imagine the number only gets higher as you restrict the study population to older groups.

It also reiterated the connection between poverty and health risks.

I wonder how well the "map" of heart disease corresponds to the map of obesity - and if the push in some cities to slim down will actually translate into reduced heart disease rates. I guess we'll keep an eye on Philadeplphia's plight.
