NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from Euro RSCG Worldwide PR-NY at:
Want to know your best defense against heart disease? Knowledge. With national heart disease statistics on the rise and cardiovascular disease the number one killer of both men and women in the U.S., it's clear that Americans still have a lot to learn about preventing these deadly illnesses. So, during Heart Health Month and all year long, how can men and women protect the overall health of their tickers and separate the facts from fiction? Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, nationally-recognized cardiologist, unmasks some common myths about heart disease. For instance, it's a myth that most women in the U.S. die from cancer. Heart disease is actually the leading cause of death of women in the U.S. Also, it's a misconception that heart disease is a man's problem. Since 1984, more women than men have died of the disease. Surprisingly, only eight percent of primary care physicians and 17 percent of cardiologists know that this illness kills more women than men. She talks to viewers about how they can become more heart healthy by following a few key steps, such as eating a healthy diet of lean meats and colorful vegetables, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and maintaining a healthy body weight.
