OCDE : « France : The mortality due to cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is the lowest amongst OECD countries »

« The mortality from CVD has decreased over the past 50 years, reaching the lowest in the OECD after Japan, at 185 per 100 000 population in 2009, 38% lower than the OECD average of 299 in 2011 (Figure 1). Likewise, potential years of life lost, a commonly used measure of premature mortality, at 343 per 100 000 population for diseases of the circulatory system in 2011, is 41% lower than the OECD average of 581 (by using the age limit of 70). The reported prevalence of diabetes is also low at 5.6%, compared to an OECD average of 6.9%. The number of patients with end-stage kidney failure (ESKF), often caused by diabetes and hypertension, is 104 per 100 000 population, close to the OECD average of 101. »
