Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States. But, you can take steps to reduce your risk through healthier habits such as limiting alcohol consumption, saying no to smoking, eating plenty of vegetables and fruits, getting quality sleep, reducing stress, and exercising. These same habits reduce the risk of developing diabetes, chronic lower respiratory diseases, and other chronic conditions. Also, do not slack off on preventive care, including regular checkups, cancer screenings including colonoscopies, and reproductive health care.
