Blog: MenoPause ~ take time to think about it

Now’s the time to help your heart

by Margery Gass | Sep 20, 2012
As we get older, our risk of cardiovascular disease rises, so now is the time to do to all we can to reduce our risk. Cardiovascular disease rates in the United States have declined dramatically since the 1950s—but not for women. From 1999 to 2004, deaths of women from heart disease actually rose. Although the rate has been declining since then, it is still higher than the rate for men. The good news is that you can effectively wipe out your risk of having a heart attack or other coronary event by adopting a healthy diet, exercising, and not smoking.
