CVD Mortality Rates Decline 16%

April 27, 2007

Statistics Canada released some fantastic news about the two biggest killers of Canadians, cancer and cardiovascular disease but you have to dig through the negative spin to find it:

The age-standardized mortality rate for cardiovascular diseases declined 16% from 2000 to 2004, while cancer mortality rates declined 4% over the same period.

That is awesome.
