\r\n \r\n The 1950\'s and 1960\'s were the worst decades in America for heart health. They were also the worst two decades for air pollution. Since then, the air has slowly improved, and heart disease slowly declined.
\r\n
\r\nDo YOU believe the high levels of air pollution in the 50\'s and 60\'s had anything to do with the high death rates from heart disease?\r\n

\nGood question, but too many parameters. It would definitely be a coeficcient in the equation, but so would convenience foods which did not exist pre 1950.\r\n

\r\n \r\n You bring up a good point saved1986. Convenience foods did not exist prior to 1950, or at least not as we know them today. Yet, MI started escalating just after 1900, long before the convenience food revolution.
\n
\nGranted Post cereals came along early on, and hydrogenated oils were born just after 1900, but packaged and processed food were not as common as today. In fact, I would say convenience foods are more common today than ever before, yet heart disease is half of what it was in the 50\'s and 60\'s ( in the states)
\n
\nI\'m not defending convenience foods. I am against them. I\'m just trying to think outside the box and be as objective as possible in the hunt for the silent killer.
\n
\nI wish I could post the 100 year graph for everyone. The image won\'t copy and past from the NIH page, which is a long and hairy page with a lot of unrelated data.\r\n

Default Voice your opinion

The 1950's and 1960's were the worst decades in America for heart health. They were also the worst two decades for air pollution. Since then, the air has slowly improved, and heart disease slowly declined.

Do YOU believe the high levels of air pollution in the 50's and 60's had anything to do with the high death rates from heart disease?
