Healthier hearts for English

12th December 2007

A study has found that people from England who live in Scotland are less likely to die from heart disease than those born north of the border.

Researchers from University of Edinburgh and the NHS National Services Scotland reached their findings by studying 300,000 death certificates of Scottish residents aged 25 or above, who died between 1997 and 2003. They found that those born in other parts of the UK who move to Scotland are 20% less likely to die from heart problems.
