Report: Sixty Percent of Adults May Suffer from Heart Disease in Next 30 Years


At least six in ten older Americans may suffer from heart disease in the coming 30 years, according to the American Heart Association (AHA).

The organization shared the news on its website on June 4. The AHA continued:

The projected rise in heart disease and stroke – along with several key risk factors, including high blood pressure and obesity – is likely to triple related costs to $1.8 trillion by 2050, according to two American Heart Association presidential advisories published Tuesday in the AHA journal Circulation. One report looks at the projected increase in cardiovascular diseaserates in the decades ahead, while the other projects their total related costs.

“The landscape of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. is seeing the arrival of a near-perfect storm,” Dr. Dhruv S. Kazi, vice chair of the advisory writing group, said in a news release.
