Heart attack deaths halve

26th January 2012

A study by Oxford University has found that the lives of almost 80,000 heart attack victims have been saved in just under a decade as deaths have halved due to healthier lives and better treatment.

The biggest reduction in heart attacks and deaths was in the middle-aged with the smallest decrease among younger and older people. Figures show that there were 18,576 fewer deaths from heart attacks in 2010 compared with 2002, and 76,978 fewer deaths in total over those years.
