"Three public health interventions could prevent 94 million premature deaths" - EurekAlert. 6/10/2019.

Lowering blood pressure, reducing sodium intake, and eliminating trans fat could prevent 94 million early deaths around the world.

"Focusing our resources on the combination of these three interventions can have a huge potential impact on cardiovascular health through 2040," said lead author Goodarz Danaei, associate professor of global health at Harvard Chan School.

The study will be published online June 10, 2019 in the journal Circulation.
