To strengthen his case, Curtis explains the limitations of epidemiology, and then will shock many readers with his revelation that cause of death—a fundamental parameter in any epi study—is itself wildly inaccurate. In many cases, the physician has no idea what actually caused the death of his patient, but is forced to reach a finding on the death certificate, in accordance with the diagnostic codes listed in the International Classification of Diseases ICD This is a safe bet since virtually every elderly person has some degree of atherosclerosis or coronary heart disease.
Curtis goes on to assure us that the inaccuracy of cause of death numbers is by no means confined to the United States. Diet-Heart proponents often point to the low fat-diet of the Japanese and their low incidence of heart disease as a proof of their theory. Yet, the Japanese have an enormously higher death rate from stroke than us high-fat diet Americans.
This is perplexing since the diseases are quite similar in etiology, albeit occurring in two different areas of the body. This seeming paradox is explained when one discovers that in Japanese culture, death from a bad heart is very undesirable, but death from a brain disorder is more honorable, and a sign of intelligence.
The most common explanation for this is their greater consumption of red wine—a hypothesis which was widely proffered, with absolutely no scientific proof. As you are now familiar with the unreliability of cause of death statistics, you will probably not be surprised to learn that the default diagnoses in France are myocarditis or hypertensive heart disease, rather than coronary heart disease.
