Albania, fifth in Europe for high incidence of deaths from heart disease, the last for tumors
 Albania was ranked fifth in Europe in terms of the high rate of deaths from blood circulation diseases (heart, hypertension), after Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, and Latvia.

The weakest heart in Europe is that of the Bulgarians, where 66% of the total deaths came from circulatory system diseases, followed by Romania (58%), Lithuania (57%), Latvia (55%) and Albania (53.7%). After Albania is ranked Serbia with 51.9%.

Data for EU countries and some other countries are provided by Eurostat, and refer to 2017, for Albania by INSTAT, while the processing of Eurostat figures and comparison is done by Monitor.

In 2019, Albania had 53.4% ​​of deaths that occurred from the circulatory system, with a slight decrease compared to 2017.

In Europe, Denmark (23.4%), the United Kingdom (25.1) and the Netherlands (25.7) have the lowest rates of deaths from circulatory diseases.

For tumor deaths, Albania, along with Bulgaria, ranks at the bottom, having the lowest weight, with about 16% of total life losses. The record is held by Slovenia and the Netherlands, with about 31-32%.

Respiratory diseases are the third leading cause of death in Europe, but Albania has the lowest level with 2.9% of the total. The record is held by the United Kingdom, with about 14%.

Sedentary lifestyle, uncontrolled diet and high exposure to alcohol and tobacco are killing Albanians and mostly men who are losing their lives every year more and more from heart attacks and strokes. The reduction in the age of mortality from this disease for men under the age of 50 years old is alarming.

Official INSTAT data show that in 2019, 32 people per day lost their lives due to diseases of the circulatory system.

A total of 11,704 people lost their lives to heart or blood pressure, or 53% of all natural deaths.

Men make up the highest percentage of deaths from this disease, with 51.5%, with 50% of the women.

In 2019, a high increase in cardiac mortality and blood pressure was observed in the age group of men 45-49 years old (+ 17%) and 55-59 years old (+ 4.6%)

46% of male deaths from this disease were in the 40-59 age group, compared to 43% a year earlier.

Doctors claim that the highest deaths in men are attributed mostly to the lifestyle. Dr. P. Malaj says that men are more exposed to smoking, alcohol, uncontrolled diet and heavy work that aggravates morbidity and especially circulatory diseases.

Across the country, in 2019 there were 4.1 deaths per 1000 inhabitants, for circulatory system disease, with a slight increase compared to 4, which was this indicator a year ago.
