Heart attack is commonly believed to be a “man’s problem.” And yet, the latest statistics tell another story.
Coronary heart disease is the No. 1 killer of females in America today.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death for females and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability.
Research shows that more than one in three females have some form of cardiovascular disease. And all cardiovascular diseases combined claim more than 475,000 female lives every year – more than the next five causes of death combined.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Program is designed to bring attention to the threat of heart disease in women. It also provides a call to action for women to commit to living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
