Womens Healthy Heart Initiative
Many women are surprised to find out that cardiovascular disease -- not cancer -- is their leading killer. In fact, cardiovascular disease claims more women's lives than the next seven leading causes of death combined.
Did you know?
- Nearly twice as many women die of cardiovascular disease than all forms of cancer.
- Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death for American women.
- Diagnosis of heart disease presents a greater challenge in women than in men.
- Women are almost 50% more likely than men to die from their heart attacks.
