If it is breast cancer that scares us, it is heart disease that kills us. In our preoccupation about cancers of all sorts, we miss the fact that heart attack and stroke kill more of us than all cancers combined. Women have different symptoms than men, we wait longer to get care, and once we get care we are often not treated as agressively. Remember, you are the best friend you've got when it comes to heading off cardiovascular disease, so find out everything you can about heart disease, and then pass it along. Have a heart to heart with each of your friends -- it's the most loving Valentine's Day gift they will ever get.
