Approximately every 80 seconds a women will die from heart disease nationwide. Statistically one out of three of us will die from either heart attack or stroke within our lifespan.  Heart disease has been the number one killer of both men and women at least since the 70’s. We have made significant improvement in decreasing the mortality of men but not a significant decrease in women.  Part of the reason is that our symptoms are not common and standard testing we use such as stress tests many not pick up the disease.
