7 Common Heart Disease Myths You Should STOP Believing
Myth #7: Men are more often affected by heart disease
Many people still believe that men are more prone to developing a heart disease at some point in their lives than women.
Unfortunately, heart disease is affecting almost the same amount of women as it does men.
For example, coronary heart disease is causing more than 50% more fatalities in women than breast cancer! This is just one example showing how much attention we should pay to our heart health regardless of gender.
If you mistakenly believe that you’re less likely to get a heart attack, you might fail to call 911 on time as you’d miss the symptoms of this condition.
