According to a new study, fewer Americans are having heart attacks and those that do, are not dying as often. UPI reports that heart attack hospitalizations have fallen by 38% percent, based on research published on Friday in the JAMA Open. The study credits the happier statistics to heart attack prevention techniques. They also applaud the efforts of researchers, clinicians, public health experts and organizations like Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. They're not only improving care, but also promoting healthy lifestyle and addressing risk factors. But according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart attacks are still the cause of one in four deaths each year. Harlan Krumholz, a cardiologist at Yale University and study lead author explains, "We document extraordinary gains -- but the effort is far from finished. The goal is to one day relegate heart attacks to the history of medicine."
