Heart Attacks Still Common in Sweden

Published onsdag 17 december 2008 kl 11.12

Fewer men in Sweden are dying from heart attacks - but for women, the number hasn’t changed in years.

Sweden and the other Nordic countries have some of the highest rates of heart disease in the world, with only areas of Scotland faring worse.

The Swedish Board of Health and Welfare has announced that no progress has been made in lowering women’s rates of heart attacks since 2005 - but for men the figure has dropped by eight percent.

However, if age is taken into account, men in Sweden have an almost twice as high incidence of heart attacks as women do.
