  1. Infant mortality and ischaemic heart disease in Hungary.

    Article - En anglais

    Hungarian mortality rate is one of the highest in Europe.

    We have investigated the association between poor living standards and ischemic heart disease by a detailed geographical comparison of infant mortality in 1920-1939 and death in adults from ischemic ; heart disease and other leading causes of death in 1990-1994.

    Ischemic heart disease [r=0.325] and malignant tumors of digestive apparatus [r=0.562] are strongly correlated with infant mortality.

    A significant difference was observed in both infant and overall mortality rates between the western and eastern counties.

    Our results suggest that the geographical distribution of ischemic heart disease in Hungary reflects later dietary influences.
