What have you done for your heart health lately?
Heart disease is the number 1 killer in America – for both men and women. The symptoms, however, can be different for each gender. Women may experience heart attack without serious pressure in the chest area. This often leads them to assume that the symptoms are caused by something less onerous. This brief PSA, produced by Go Red for Women and starring Elizabeth Banks, quickly sums up signs of heart attack in women. Their website provides other good information to share with friends and family.
Remember that healthy diet and proper exercise can greatly reduce the threat of heart disease – a little prevention is worth a pound of cure (or something like that!).
