People talking about cardiovascular disease research often mention that it’s the leading cause of death in the states. I went to look it up today and found the Center for Disease Control’s Leading Causes of Death Reports. You can break things down a number of ways. Cardiovascular disease is number one across all age groups, but up to age 34, #1 is unintentional injury. 35-64 it’s “Malignant Neoplasms” which I assume means cancer.
I guess I’d better try not to injure myself.
