Simple lifestyle changes could save 200,000 lives a year
Washington: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has revealed that a few simple changes in daily routine can help prevent 200,000 deaths a year.
The CDC director, Tom Frieden, said that better attention to heart and cardiovascular health could drastically improve the health of Americans, Fox News reported.
He added that nothing is more important than lowering the rate of heart diseases and strokes , which accounted for an estimated 200,000 preventable deaths-one out of every three-in the U.S. in 2010 according to their monthly report, as it is the top most reason for deaths in the country.
Frieden explained that more than half of those deaths occurred in people under the age of 65 and could be prevented with lifestyle changes, better medical care, or stronger public health policies.
