WITH SIX STEPS, YOU COULD LOWER YOUR RISKS FOR HEART DISEASE, THE LEADING KILLER OF WOMEN.
Despite the rise of public awareness campaigns and high-profile events to draw attention to this preventable illness, heart disease remains more deadly than any other disease, affecting women of all generations, ethnicities and geographies. Why? Research suggests lifestyle choices and high-risk factors greatly influence a woman's chances of developing heart disease, however, many don't know where to begin. There hasn't been a simple how-to guide to help women of all ages put the research and physician's guidance into action. Until now.
Authored by cardiologists and heart health advocates, Drs. Jennifer H. Mieres and Stacey E. Rosen, Heart Smart for Women offers a step-by-step program for women to understand risk factors for heart disease, and learn about dietary habits, lifestyle choices and other important factors for a heart-healthy life. Backed by expert research and real-life physician/patient stories, the book provides six steps to heart-smart living.
