A survey conducted by the Osaka Prefecture Health Research Center found that the incidence rate of myocardial infarction among urban working males doubled during the last 15 years. The center used clinical data from roughly 160,000 people from both urban and rural areas. Among the male population between 40 and 69 years of age living in urban areas, the rate of MI occurrence was 56 out of 100,000 people from 1988-1995, and it was 127 out of 100,000 from 1996-2003, a 2.3 times increase. The center cites possible reasons such as a high fat and cholesterol diet triggered by increased dining out, and higher stress levels. (Click here for more - Japanese language
