Blacks have more fatal first-time heart attacks

Black adults are more likely than Whites to die of a first heart attack, a new analysis suggests.
Two out of three major heart studies reviewed, involving more than 28,000 people, found Black men between the ages of 45 and 64 years were twice as likely to die of a first heart attack as White men. Older Blacks were also more likely than Whites to die of a first heart attack, but the difference was smaller.
