Heart to Heart

Death from heart disease has been decreasing since the 1960s and it's come down largely because of decreased smoking, good medicines for blood pressure, and more recently cholesterol. But if you look at the youngest age groups, it's plateauing and beginning to go up in the mid-30s and mid-40s age groups.

This does not even take into account the rapid growth of cosmetic medicine, feeding our ever expanding need to look good and desire to try and put off the concerning effects of aging.
