Every precaution should be taken to prevent the leading cause of death in women. Hence the creation of the infographic, “Women + Heart Disease.” The good news is that there is great hope; something can be done to stave off its ravaging effects. The hybrid word-image construction is a quick, easy-to-follow guide to steps women can take now to live better and longer. Glance about the purple lady, wine glass in hand. There is nothing esoteric here except a radical life change for those who partake of the program. It can mean the difference between life and death. In this regard, tossing the cigarettes is no surprise. Drinking less alcohol is sound and wise. Exercising cures many afflictions as does time for rest and relaxation. Stress hormones are damaging and destructive and are to be alleviated at all costs. Furthermore, it never hurts to get regular checkups to keep tabs on your heart health. Perhaps not as well-known, however, are new habits to adopt such as brushing one’s teeth more often and eliminating clot-inducing birth control pills. Skipping soda and practicing safe sex are right in line with the infographic’s message of common sense adherence to the rules of disease reduction. Doing it before the age of 50 increases the odds of success. With so much emphasis on well-being and fitness, it makes sense to subscribe to the plan whether or not you are at significant risk.
