According to the Canadian Women's Heart Health Centre, 80 percent of the risk factors for heart disease are within women's control. That's a sig- nicant point of interest, as the 2019 Global Burden of Disease Study from The Lancet Commission concluded there are approximately 275 million women across the globe with cardiovascular disease. The CWHHC reports that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women worldwide, but recognizing controllable risk factors could decrease cases of heart disease in women by a potentially significant margin. Among the controllable risk factors are: • Smoking • Obesity • Physical inactivity • Unhealthy diet • High blood pressure • High cholesterol
