Ky. Heart Disease Study


The first state-by-state study on the prevalence of heart disease in the U.S. found a few surprises.

The new analysis said West Virginia and Kentucky have the highest percentage of people with heart disease in the country. West Virginia has over ten percent and Kentucky has almost nine percent.

An expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the study confirms the regional differences stem from cultural norms, poverty rates and other social factors, not environmental causes.
