American Heart Association spokeswoman Elizabeth Warmka said the state last in deaths from all cardiovascular diseases, including stroke. Warmka said the 45% drop in heart disease related deaths is because of major lifestyle changes. Minnesotans are getting more exercise, eating healthier, seeing their doctor more often. And many stop smoking. Warmka said the state has been a leader in those statistics for many years and now we're seeing the results. The rate nationwide is also dropping but not as much as in Minnesota. Warmka said the new smoking ban in public places should lead to even healthier hearts.
