Having just been diagnosed with premature menopause at 39 years old, I am earnestly searching for what problems I might be facing with my decreased estrogen. Increased risk for heart disease is one of them, and I am searching for everything I can find on risk factors, modifiable or not. This is a easy and quick read. I would think that insurance companies would want to include this in their new member packages if applicable. Thanks for providing this important information.

This is the definitive source on women and their problems with hearts.

I ordered this material 3 years ago. I have used it to teach school staff, my friends at church, anyone who will listen. I have gotten art teachers in the school to do poster contests, with the posters being displayed during Feb. A really great resource!

I was nervous about some symptoms and was so glad to be able to quickly get information concerning heart attack and stroke for women. I intend to follow up with my doctor but most important I am now making LIFE CHANGES so that these symptoms will no longer be an issue. I want to thank you for freely giving out this information. It is truly life saving and and eye opener.
