Cardiac Costs to Triple

A new study finds that the costs to treat heart disease in the US will triple by 2030.

A study published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association found that the costs to treat heart disease in the US will triple by 2030, from $273 billion to $818 billion. The study estimated the price tag based on current disease rates and anticipated population shifts based on Census data; however, the study does not account for new treatment discoveries. The study states prevention strategies as necessary to curb heart disease, which currently affects one in every three Americans. Late last year, researchers at Oxford found that people who consumed eight or more servings of produce per day were 22 percent less likely to die from ischemic heart disease than those who consumed three or fewer servings.
