Britainís Heart Disease Capital is Manchester

A new report has revealed that Tameside in Greater Manchester is UK's 'heart disease capital'.

According to The British Heart Foundation (BHF), people who reside in this area have a greater chance of dying from coronary heart disease as compared to any other place in UK.

According to statistics there are about 132 deaths per 100,000 people and the main culprit happens to be the western diet.

Professor Peter Weissberg, the charity's medical director, said: 'These latest figures expose staggering inequalities in deaths from heart disease across the UK. But it's unacceptable that people continue to die from heart attacks, regardless of their postcode. Coronary heart disease is not beaten yet - it remains the single biggest killer in the UK. We urgently need the nation to unite behind our quest to fund research to eradicate this deadly disease wherever it strikes.'
