Abstract

Death from cardiovascular causes is the number one health threat for women. Yet, most women do not consider themselves to be at risk. The authors discuss the role of modifiable risk factors for coronary heart disease including hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, smoking, and obesity. In addition, the importance of exercise and the use of aspirin for the prevention of heart disease in women is also discussed.
