Heart disease also kills women


The Heart Foundation has launched a new campaign to dispel the myth that heart disease is a medical condition that affects only men.

The disease was the cause of death in 34 percent of Australians in 2006, and more than half of them are women.

Tony Stubbs, the ACT Heart Foundation, said that the Go Red for Women campaign is also promoting a healthier lifestyle.

"Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women is a fact that only three out of every 10 women are aware that came from an investigation of recent Newspoll," he said.

"So we are really trying to promote the message that heart disease is a major problem for women and that is also largely preventable."

Hi,

For the past five years, 75,000 cases of cardiovascular disease have been cured, through a miracle mineral supplement. Medical advancements, such as this, are because of the work organizations, such as yourself, have done. We here, at Disease.com (an established website to the preventions and treatments of diseases), have been inspired by the awareness and research your organization has done.
