Taking into account death rates and risk factors, an online tool highlights that heart disease and strokes are more likely to affect those who have poorer diets and live in the less affluent parts of England; those who are poorer and have poorer diets are 2.5 times more likely to develop heart disease and strokes than those who live in more affluent areas.
