Cardiovascular Disease = Number One Killer

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women. The good news is that it both preventable and treatable. Risk factors include hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, lack of physical activity, smoking, and a family history. It is important to be screened if you are at risk.

  1. Dr. Greenberg, more women should listen to these subjects about heart
    disease in women. I will be passing the word around especially since I have heart disease. Thank you for bringing this to the attention of women and men alike. I wasn’t aware that heart disease is more prevelent in women so I learned something by listening to this interesting subject.

    1. Thanks Judy! A woman is 10 times more likely to die of cardiovascular disease than breast cancer. It is the number one threat to women. The good news is that it is highly preventable. Please pass on our web site to all who are interested. It is free for everyone and a great reference. Our goal is to get everyone healthier this year!
