Save her heart this Valentines

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is asking lovers across the Continent to send an e-card to their sweetheart to show support for women’s heart health this Valentine’s Day.

55% of women across Europe die of cardiovascular disease (CVD), it affects more women than cancer or any other ailment, yet most women are unaware that CVD poses such a big threat to their health nor realise that risk increases with age.

Visit the ESC website today and send an ecard to the woman in your life that shows you really care.

Simple changes in lifestyle – such as quitting smoking, exercising and eating more fruits and vegetables – can reduce the risk of heart disease. The ecards are in the Woman at Heart section of the website.
