The Truth is..
The Heart Truth is heart disease and stroke is a leading cause of death for women in Canada, but most don’t know it. Heart disease is not just a “man’s disease”: women are more likely than men to die of a heart attack or stroke. The good news is that if women put their own health first by making lifestyle changes, they can reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by as much as 80 percent.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s The Heart Truth campaign calls on women to put their own health first by assessing their risk for heart disease and stroke, talking to their doctor, and making heart healthy lifestyle choices in order to enjoy a long and healthy life with their loved ones.
