I think the most important message I can send is that heart disease can happen to anyone. It is not a disease of old age; it is not a men’s disease; you can be healthy and active and still be affected. So naturally I want to share this American Heart Association infographic on myths vs. realities.
Pay attention to your body and your risk factors. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, more than all forms of cancer combined. Pay attention, and spread the word.
