Happiness Through Health
Heart disease deaths have
dropped below the one million
mark for the first time since
1967 in the United States and
the Government’s chief car
diologist says improved medi
cal care is primarily respon
sible.
Cardiovascular disease
death rates have been declin
ing for the last 25 years but
this decline has not usually
been reflected in decreases in
total number of deaths be
cause the population, and par
ticularly the number of older
people, has been increasing.
The key to the decline in
total cardiovascular deaths
has been the turnaround that
was first noticed two years
ago of heart attack death
rates. Those rates had been
steadily climbing during the
1950’s and early 1960’s.
No. 1 Killer
Heart attacks are still the
nation’s No. 1 Killer and more
than 650,000 Americans are
expected to die of heart at
tacks this year. But the heart
attack death rate is now seven
percent below what it was in
1970.
The National Center for
Health Statistics reported that
the number of deaths from
major, cardiovascular di
seases in 1975 was 979,180. In
1974, the figure was 1,010,926
and it was 1,037,492 in 1973.
Besides heart attacks. Go
vernment statisticians include
in their total deaths from high
blood pressure, rheumatic fe
ver and rheumatic heart di
sease, stroke, diseases of the
heart muscle and arterioscle
orosis and other artery di
seases.
Dr. Robert I. Levy, director
of the National Heart, Lung
and Blood Institute, said deve
lopment and widespread use
of improved ways to diagnose
and treat heart disease was
key reasons for the drop in
cardiovascular disease
deaths.
“We know that detection
and adequate treatment of
high blood pressure reduces
the threat of stroke, conges
tive heart failure, renal (kid
ney) failure and other conse
quencies of uncontrolled hy
pertension,” he said. “We
think that such measures can
also reduce the risk of prema
ture coronary heart disease
and its complications."
Dr. Levy said that detection
and control of elevated blood
levels of chlesterol and volun
tary efforts to switch to “more
prudent patterns of diet,” re
duce smoking and increase
exercise may have a role in
the cardiovascular death re
duction.
WOMB CANCER FOUND
A womb cancer that usually
strikes women 55 or older has
been found in women in their
30’s and 40’s who were taking
a certain birth control pill.
The pill was Oracon, the most
popular of the three “sequen
tial” contraceptive pills re
moved from the market last
February because they were
judged riskier and less effec
tive than the more widespread
“combination” pills. At the
time it was taken off the
market, Oracon was being
taken by about three-quarters
of a million American women.
The cancer of the endome
trium, the lining of the womb,
occurred in eight women aged
37 to 45, according to a recent
report in the Journal of the
American Medical Associa
tion. The women had taken
Oracon for four to eight years,
and were still taking it when
they developed cancer.
Six of the women developed
abnormal bleeding while they
were taking the pill, and two
learned of their cancer after
surgery on the uterus was
performed for other reasons,
said Dr. Raymond H. Kauf
man, chairman of the depart
ment of Obstetrics and Gyne
cology at Baylor College of
Medicine, who headed the stu
dy. All eight women had to
undergo hysterectomy, remo
val of the uterus.
After studying earlier re
P°rts; the Food and Drug
Administration asked the
manufacturers of Oracon, Or
tho-Novum and Norquen to
remove these products from
the market. The manufactur
ers did so. (NNP>U

Second Flu Shot Due In Four Weeks
- v>0vik) iu uuuugu years
of age should receive a second
flu shot four weeks after theii
first flu vaccination, accord
ing to information which the
Mecklenburg County Helath
Department has received
from the Center for Disease
Control.'
Dr. Charles H. Miller, Meek
lenburg County Director ol
Public Health, said today thal
this official information from
the Center indicates that per
sons in this age range need
additional vaccine because
their bodies don’t produce
as many antibodies as are
needed for protection againsl
flu^_and a second dose of the
•aiiure is recommended to
produce adequate protection.
Several thousand persons in
this age range have received
their first flu shot at the public
clinics sponsored by the
Health Department, and
others have been vaccinated
at the Health Department dur
ing its on-going flu vaccination
program or at their private
physician's office.'
These persons may receive
a second vaccination at the
Health Department, 1200
Blythe Boulevard on Mon
days, Tuesdays, and Thurs
days from 8a.m. to 4 p.m.; on
Wednesdays from 2 p.m. until
4 p.m.; and on Fridays from
10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

able at the Huntersville
