hai.fmgh You are invited to
picture, in your mind's eye, a mod
ern American city of 136,151 peo
ple. Such a city would
contain skyscrapers, parks and
playgrounds, busses, taxicabs, and
all other modern conveniences. Its
main street and those adjacent to
it would be crowded with shoppers
by day and filled with pleasure
seekers by night.
If such a city should start losing
population today, and within
twenty-five years become extinct,
that would be just what has hap
pened to 136,151 people in North
Carolina who died of heart diseases
in the past quarter of a century
This figure is a startling one and
yet, it is correct, according to of
fieial renorts made to the State
Board of Health.
Of the 136,151 heart deaths that
have occured in North Carolina in
cluding and since 1924, through
1948, 64,781 occurred during Hie
past ten years. In North Carolina
during last year alone, 8,202 people
were victims of diseases of the
Increase Was Steady
Deaths from heart diseases have
steadily mounted during the period
under consideration. In 1924, there
were 3.465 such deaths reported to
the State Board of Health. Last
year led all others during the inter
vening period, with 8,202 such
deaths, according to figures just
released by the State Board of
Health's Bureau of Vital Statistics.
All vital statistics for 1948 have
now been compiled, in a provis
ional report. During the year, there
were 111,963 live births and 30,560
deaths from all causes. Of this
total, 17,052, or considerably more
than one-half, resulted from just
four causes diseases of the heart,
8,202: intracranial vascular lesions,
or strokes, 3,449; cancer, 2,898; and
nephritis, or Bright s Disease,
Studying further the vital statist
ics picture of 1948, as revealed in
the State Board of Health's annual
report, it is noted that, during last
year, there was not a single death
from malaria in North Carolina.
Diptheria was responsible for 26
deaths, as compared with 33 in
1947. Measles claimed only five
lives during the year, which was
just one fifth of the number re
ported in 1947.
Polio Toll Heavy
Iufantile paralysis, unfortunate
ly, was responsible for 139 deaths
during 1948. as compared with 21
in 1947. There need be no explan
ation for this enormous increase,
further than to call attention to the
epidemic which plagued this state
during the latter half of the year.
Deaths from all forms of tuber
culosis, in 1948, totaled 952. This
was a decrease under 1947, when
the total was 1,065. In spite of the
fact that it is now preventable,
typhoid fever continues to claim
a few lives. Last year there were
According to the Stale Board of
Health's method o f compilation,
automobile accidents were respon
sible for 825 deaths during 1948,
while other accidents resulted in
1,455 deaths, making a total of
2,280, a majority of which could
have been prevented.
Other Vital Statistics
Increases were shown in both
suicides and homicides during last
year. The number of suicides re
ported to the State Board of
Health was 320, as compared with
3 15 in 1947, while homicides
numbered 415 against 409 the pre
Diabetes took a heavy toll during
the year registering 556 deaths
for the period under consideration.
This was a slight decrease under
