When it comes to prescription medication, we may think to ourselves, "my kids or grandkids would never get into my medicine." Or, "if taking one pill made me feel good, two pills should work even better." And, "if it works for someone else, I should be ok to take that too."
When you hear the word "heart disease" or "heart attack," what is your first thought? You may think, "that won't happen to me." According to the American Heart Association, Heart Disease is the No.1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. That's approximately one woman every minute! The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, killing 321,000 men in 2013-that's 1 in every 4 male deaths.
