Media Alert - Life in Canada is more deadly for immigrants

    Oh Canada! Are immigrants seeking a better life in Canada setting
    themselves up for possible premature death?

    OTTAWA, Oct. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - On Monday Oct 27 a Canadian Cardiovascular
Congress study reveals that immigration is a powerful independent risk factor
for heart disease.
    This new study finds that immigrants move to Canada with healthy hearts -
but the longer they live in Canada, the more their risk increases, eventually
surpassing that of Canadians of the same ethnic background.
