Heart Smart: Bronx doctors warn women about heart disease
Bronx doctors are warning women about heart disease during American Heart Month.
Doctors say heart disease is the number one killer of women. However, it can be prevented with exercise, a healthy diet and cutting out risk factors such as smoking.
Doctors say if someone feels a numbing pain in the arms or chest, has shortness of breath or dizziness, they could be experiencing a heart attack. Many patients say interpreting the signs quickly and getting to a hospital saved their lives.
