The paper 'Epidemiological Analysis of Non-Infectious Disease' is a perfect example of a Health Sciences and Medicine. It has been seen in the recent study of the society that the various sectors are developing faster as the demands for services are increasing rapidly. This holds true to almost all the spheres of public life including medicine. Due to the changes that have occurred within the society which today functions as one global unit it has been seen that there is an increasing trend of adopting the method of Epidemiological analysis for diseases that affect a large population so as to ensure that proper health care facilities are developed and more efficient medicinal practices can be established to ensure patient security, etc.

Epidemiology is a practice which looks into the various factors that affect the fitness and illnesses of populations (pages 222-226 cited from Circulation Journal (2006). ). It helps analyze and establish methods of preventive medicine that are based on logical research made on the basis of mass well being. In the following paper, there shall be an attempt made to carry out the detailed epidemiology on one of the most prevalent noninfectious diseases that plague human society in the 21st century, which is heart diseases or coronary diseases.

This will help the paper realize and establish the importance of epidemiological analysis and lead to the development of a detailed layout of what is involved in carrying out such researches. Historical Perspective: There has been seen that there is a steady rise in the number of people and cases that report heart problems around the globe in the past two decades (pages 167-170 cited from the European Journal of Epidemiology (2006). ).

The age group that used to be affected by heart problems were earlier confined to the late middle-aged and the aged, but there has been observed over the past two decades that there has been a massive change in this medicinal trend (Basel Birkhauser Verlag (2004). ). The incidences o the younger population complaining about heart problems has increased manifolds and the number of cases registering people in their late and early twenties complaining and dying of heart problems has risen multifold (pages 618-624 cited from British Journal of Anaesthesia (2008). ).

The scenario has deteriorated to such an extent that there has been reported that in the year 2007 that it the leading cause of death in most countries including the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand. The situation has gotten so bad that it is believed that today this is the leading cause of death in almost all of these countries, and figures reflect that in about every 34 seconds, a person in the United States dies due to some heart problems or disease. Epidemiologic Tools The disease today has become so widespread that it has been realized by most practitioners that there has to be carried out a detailed analysis of the disease and develop methods of preventing the various forms of heart diseases that exist in the current society (Online 2010).

Thus, there has been observed that over the past decade and a half there has been an increasing incidence of awareness about heart diseases and treatment in the various societies which has been created with the help of epidemiological analysis of the disease.
