New Jersey women urged to protect themselves against heart disease
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America and New Jersey women are urged this February, Heart Month, to learn the risks.
New Jersey cardiologist Dr. Mark Blurn says the most common form of heart disease is coronary artery disease. That?s when fat deposits called plague, build up and clog your arteries. It can lead to heart attack or death.
Risk factors for heart disease include high blood pressure, diabetes, inactivity, smoking, and a family history of heart disease. Doctors say diet and exercise are the keys to preventing heart disease.
