  • Abstract Geographical differences in cardiovascular mortality within the United States have not yet been adequately explained. Age-adjusted rates of mortality due to arteriosclerotic heart disease in the white residents of 99 of the 100 largest cities in the United States were compared with the hardness of the finished drinking water of the municipal supplies and with the altitude of residence above sea level. This mortality showed a higher negative correlation with the latter variable than… CONTINUE READING
