Excellent study.As an extension ,if we can clearly identify factors for lowest deaths in MN as compared to Misssissipi , following factors are likely to emerge.
1 Diet 2.Exercise and levels of physical activity.3 Ethnic differences and genetic build up .3Quality of sleep and hours 4 Family orientation and job stress 5 Obesity 6 Diabetes 7 Smoking and drinking habits and probably some small contribution by the most acclaimed Villain CHOLESTEROL..Even a simple reasoning will lead us to conclusion that Cholesterol levels are really the result of unhealthy lifestyle , except in genetic disorders.The greatest irony is that Statin studies show that it causes Diabetes , Liver dysfunction and still prevents death from heart attack.I once again appeal to AHA to consider restricting Statins to very limited cases and saving the humanity.Thanks
