Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States. This video explains the two types of heart disease risk factors — ones that you can control and prevent and the ones that you can’t. It’s important to know the risk factors because having just one risk factor doubles your chance of developing heart disease.

This video is by The Heart Truth® — a program sponsored by NHLBI, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The program’s goal is to raise awareness about heart disease in women — the risks, the causes, and the ways women can keep their hearts healthy.
