*Mission Viejo, CA ― Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United States, killing more women than breast and lung cancer combined.
Silence is one of the most deadly aspects of women’s heart disease, and cardiologist Dr. Jacqueline Eubany (Dr. Jackie) makes that point in her concise, accessible book, “Women and Heart Disease: The Real Story“:
Angie is a 46-year-old divorced mother of two school-aged children. One morning she was just not feeling her usual self….Undaunted, the busy mother went about her usual morning routine…. Angie’s coworkers noticed that she looked unusually pale and advised her to go to the doctor’s office. Hard-working Angie declined….As the sole financial provider for her family, the young woman felt she could not afford to take time off. There were too many outstanding bills and her children needed her. Angie hoped she would soon start to feel better.
Tragically, she did not. Days later she made it to the emergency room, but her heart was permanently damaged. Through anecdotes and friendly, jargon-free advice, Dr. Jackie tells readers how to reduce their risk by up to 80%, how to recognize a heart attack earlier, and how to make the healthiest choices for your heart and your loved ones.
