Positive Lifestyle is Extremely Effective in Preventing Sudden Cardiac Death in Women
Harvard’s Nurses’ Health Study has come to the conclusion that women who do not smoke, maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, and follow a healthy diet have a 92% reduction in risk of a sudden heart attack compared to those who have none of the lifestyle factors. This translates to attribute 79% of sudden cardiac deaths in women stemming from unhealthy lifestyles. Similar findings have been found in men but not to this degree.
