Heart Disease in Women*

It doesn’t affect all women alike, and the warning signs for women are not the same as men. A heart attack does not always have obvious symptoms, such as pain in your chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats. In fact, a heart attack can actually happen without a person knowing it.

Fact: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That's approximately one woman every minute!

Living heart healthy is not just about living longer, but also living better!
