FDA releases consumer health information providing women with tips on preventing heart disease

The FDA released a consumer health information update on June 2 that provides women with tips on preventing heart disease.

Approximately 25 percent of women die from heart disease, the leading cause of death among women according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


Recently, NPR noted that a survey found only half of women from 25 to 60 years old knew that heart disease was the most dangerous threat to women’s lives.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) created a website that gives women resources on how to eat healthy and reduce their risk of heart disease.
