Excerpt
It is common knowledge that mortality rates from arteriosclerotic and degenerative heart disease (AHD) are much higher in the highly industrialized, technically advanced countries than in the developing countries. It is also well known that death rates from this disease have increased over the past several years, particularly in the younger age-groups: in ' some countries they have increased by as much as 2 or 3 times in one decade. Part of the increase is likely to be an artefact brought about by the changing fashion in certifying heart disease as a cause of death, by better diagnostic procedures, and by the longer life expectancy; nevertheless, several authors (Lew, 1957; Oliver & Stuart-Harris, 1965; Reader & Wynn, 1966) have pointed out that much of this increase cannot be accounted for simply in terms of artefacts and must be considered as real. Recent autopsy studies have confirmed that differences in aortic and coronary atherosclerosis between different countries and population groups are real and striking (Tejada et al., 1968).`
