Heart Health and Women

Many women are surprised to learn that heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women, striking more women than the next seven causes of death combined. It is estimated that one in two women will die of heart disease or stroke. Still thought of as a man's problem, the facts show that - since 1984 - more women than men die of cardiovascular disease every year.
