Heart disease is the #1 Killer in women. I lost my mother to this silent disease, which is the very reason I work very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Early detection is the key! Ladies, please be sure to get regular checkups and take preventative measures to prevent increasing your risk.
Simple steps include:
- 30 minutes of physical activity every day
- clean eating, and adding more fruits, vegetables, & fiber to your diet
- drinking more water; dehydration can lead to heart disease (and many other diseases)
- know your family history
