In 2002, 1 in 3 women died of heart disease. That year, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute launched The Heart Truth campaign to make women more aware of the danger of heart disease—the #1 killer of women.
The good news is that women are now living longer and healthier lives. Heart disease deaths continue to decline in American women. Ten years later, 1 in 4 women dies of heart disease.
Although significant progress has been made, there is still work to do. Heart disease remains the #1 killer of women—but many still don’t take their risk for heart disease seriously or personally. This infographic tells a decade-long heart health story and provides an action plan for women to protect their hearts.
