Summary This is the sixteenth edition of Coronary Heart Disease Statistics produced by the British Heart Foundation.

It is divided into 13 chapters.

* The first two chapters on mortality and morbidity deal with demographic trends in CHD and related diseases of the circulatory system.
* Following a section on treatment of CHD there are chapters on the main modifiable risk factors for the disease: smoking, an unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, a high alcohol consumption, poor psychosocial wellbeing, raised blood pressure, raised blood cholesterol, obesity and diabetes.
* The final chapter provides information about the economic costs of CHD.

The compendium was published by the British Heart Foundation in July 2008.
