Research shows that many women do not view heart disease as health threat so here are some stats and info to better inform you :
Heart disease includes conditions affecting the heart, such as coronary heart disease, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the U.S. Keys to prevention include quitting smoking, lowering cholesterol, controlling high blood pressure, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising (from WebMD).
- Only 13% of women view heart disease as a health threat, even though it’s women's No. 1 killer.
- Cardiovascular disease (CVD) kills over 480,000 women a year, about one per minute.
- One in three adult females and males in the United States suffers from a form of CVD.
