Hey old folks. Did more people have heart attacks and stroke before medications were invented?
Or is the rate of heart attacks the same before and after the invention of blood pressures and cholesterol medicine?

I can’t find real stats on this except from the government which cannot be trusted

So I am asking the old folks of glp whether they have noticed a trend or not

Average life expectancy until very recently was 75. 100 yrs ago you were lucky to see 60. 200 yrs ago you retired at 40.

Medicine keeps people alive longer. Facts.

As I recall, news of people dying of heart attacks was about as common, but I feel there were many more people having strokes.
Also, there was only one kid at school who ever had asthma. Poor little buggar. It was so rare we treated him like a freak.
Diabetes is another that was hardly ever heard of, a real rarity. In fact I never heard of one person I knew personally.

Stay well (age 75yrs)

Yes, most of the men on my dad's side died in their early 50's due to Familiar Hyperlipidemia, I'm in my 60's and still kick thanks to statins and blood thinners and blood pressure medicine.

Back in the day:
Less people had heart attacks.
But it was more often fatal.

When I was a kid in the early 1960's, if some ones grandpa had a heart attack and survived, they were the talk of the town for a while.

Now it seems that everybody over 50 has had a couple.

People used to die from infections until antibiotics were invented. Plus until about the 1970s almost everyone smoked, so that killed a lot of people (cancer and heart attacks/strokes).

I cannot remember young people dying of heart disease years ago as I have now. BUT....we didn't have the internet back then that reports these things.

Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Stallone (1976–2012), died of heart disease at age 36. Atherosclerosis. Hard to believe. Atherosclerosis usually occurs in elderly people.
