Facts About Heart Disease in Women

Do you know what causes heart disease in women? What about the survival rate?
Or whether women of all ethnicities share the same risk? The fact is: Heart disease
is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That’s approximately
one woman every minute! But it doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs
for women aren’t the same in men. What’s more: These facts only begin to scratch
the surface. There are several misconceptions about heart disease in women, and they
could be putting you at risk. The American Heart Association’s Go Red For
Women movement advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s
heart health for this very reason. In this section, we’ll arm you with the facts
and dispel some myths – because the truth can no longer be ignored.
