WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
There are 3 important things to know about heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in this country.
1 Heart disease strikes more women than men, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer COMBINED.
2 With the right information, education and care, heart disease in women can be treated, prevented--even stopped.
3 The signs of a heart attack in women may differ from those commonly found in men; they can easily be mistaken for symptoms of other ailments.
