Okay Ladies, Pay Attention

Hey ladies, this video’s for you. It was produced by the Heart Specialists of Lancaster and demonstrates the real need for programs the increase awareness of heart disease among women. Everyone at is at risk, learn how to reduce your chances of getting heart disease.



According to the American Women’s Medical Association and
Healthyfridge.org:

A woman who has a heart attack is one-and-a-half times as likely as a man to die from it, and, if she survives, more likely to have a second one.
Framingham Heart Study

In women, the rate of death from heart disease far exceeds that of breast cancer. One woman in 29 dies of breast cancer. One in 2.4 dies of cardiovascular disease, including a heart attack or stroke. Heart disease is the number-one killer of women.

Making margarine a part of your overall healthy diet, which should be rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, is a great way to cut back on saturated fats. As most of you are aware, saturated and trans fats are the two kinds of fats you do not need (or want) in your diet. Margarine is low in both!
