Deaths from heart disease and stroke in the US have dropped by about 50% since the 1980s. This is thought to be due to fewer people smoking, more people maintaining healthy diets, and improvement in screening and treatment. Despite this, heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the US, with about 2 out of every 1,000 people a year dying from it.
