Women need to be aware of such statistics as:

  • Every year, coronary heart disease claims the lives of more women than breast cancer and lung cancer combined.
  • More women die within one year of having a heart attack as compared to men.
  • Almost 65 percent of women, who die suddenly of coronary heart disease, had no previous symptoms.
You may be at risk for heart disease and have no symptoms.

  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol intake
  • Unhealthy diet
