Recommended Product: Heart of a Woman – the prevention and cure of the #1 killer of women
A fact that too few physicians, much less women and patients, realize is that the number one killer of women is heart disease. Over 500,000 women die each year in the United States alone from heart disease. That is six times as many as from breast cancer and twice as many deaths as all cancer deaths in women combined. Furthermore, the symptoms of heart attack differ in women from those in men and are far too often misdiagnosed by health care personnel including physicians. Too often women die needlessly because they do not seek help when a heart problem exists, or because time is lost while diagnosis is sought by process of elimination rather than by recognition of the symptoms. Furthermore, most of the heart problems that that too often end in death or permanent damage, could be avoided, cured or controlled with proper simple lifestyle change or treatment. It is the purpose of this book to raise the awareness of this women’s epidemic among women, physicians, nurses and all health care workers.
