Matters of the heart can be messy, layered, and feel overwhelmingly heavy when any impact is made but change is a necessary evil.
With heartaches and breaks in mind, this lady killer subject has to be addressed.
Big ups to my friends at American Heart Association for their strides with women’s health.
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 advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health for this very reason.

PSS – Read more and make adjustments to your life or diet as needed. Seek advice from your doctor and / or an educated nutritionist.
PSSS – If you don’t have your health, you have nothing. It’s hard to put yourself first but you must. Take care, you!
