Heart Health For Canadians
by Dr. Beth Abramson
This is a must read for women over the age of 50. It is a definitive guide to heart disease and how to prevent it. She is a leading Canadian expert that can be trusted.
Every seven minutes in Canada, someone dies from heart disease or stroke. Heart disease and stroke are leading killers and health treats to all–men and women alike. When we think of a typical patient with heart disease, we often imagine an older, grey haired person. However, that is not the case at all. Younger and younger people are never becoming heart unhealthy and some are getting heart attacks at an earlier age. Heart disease kills more Canadian women each year than most cancers combined. We have to discuss the effects of this silent killer.
Dr. Abramson is passionate about changing our odds or surviving a heart attack or living a heart-healthy life. As a respected cardiologist, Dr. Abramson has spoken to doctors, patients and people across the country about the realities of heart health. Building from that hands-on experience, she presents a full-spectrum approach to heart disease, covering risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, recovery, new research and cutting edge therapies. This book is the guidance that we all need to ward off heart disease before it is too late.
Thank you Dr. Abramson for such a GREAT life changing book!
