Deaths from Coronary heart disease discussion: Death rates from CHD decreased dramatically during the 1960s and 1970s, with slower declines occurring during the 1980s.

These slowdowns in the rate of the decline of heart disease deaths may mean that progress in reducing these deaths is in jeopardy.1
