More women are now dying of cardiovascular disease than men. With the baby boomer generation getting older, we are at the forefront of a real crisis in women’s health. More women are now dying of cardiovascular disease than are dying of all forms of cancer combined. Written with the depth of a seasoned expert in her field, “WHY MOST WOMEN DIE” has the layman in mind. A person with zero knowledge of the cardiovascular system could read and quickly obtain practical, preventive health information-life saving information. “WHY MOST WOMEN DIE” is full of preventive advice for women who have heart disease, women who are at risk of heart disease, or for women who are healthy and just want to stay that way.
The book addresses questions about diet, exercise, medications, risk factors, symptoms, other heart problems besides heart disease, even questions about sex and alcohol as they relate to heart health. Awareness first-only 13% of women recognize heart disease as their most serious threat. The second aim of the book is prevention. Heart disease is a danger, but it’s a danger that can be overcome.
