is the No. 1 killer of American females. Stroke is the No. 3 killer
and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability.
Most American women do not recognize cardiovascular disease as a leading
health problem and cause of death. As a result, having a heart attack
or stroke isn't top on the list of health problems they want to worry
