Hearth disease kills roughly 10x more women than breast cancer! With all of the support and survivor events you'd think it was then opposite.

I wonder if we will now start seeing runs, walks, and other events to raise awareness for the greatest threat women face...heart disease?

Probably not as breast cancer awareness is as much, or perhaps more, about bringing focus on a nearly uniquely "women's" issue. Focusing on heart disease would mean sharing the limelight with men... I don't anticipate any change in focus...

Heart disease in women is primarily a problem with inflammation. This is exacerbated by use of non-natural oils (vegetable oils are the major culprit - they are not natural, they are synthetic and "scrape" the inside of the vessels causing inflammation).

If you research you will see that heart disease has increased right along with the use of hydrogenated oils (margarine, shortening) and "vegetable" oils (canola is especially harmful).

Much safer to use only olive oil, coconut oil (which is solid at room temperature and great for baking and cooking) and butter. These are the only oils women should eat or serve to others.

Unfortunately, the American Heart Association "endorses" unhealthy oils, and they also contribute to the cholesterol scam.

Cholesterol has never been linked as a causative factor in heart disease. It is a natural substance in the body, used to create hormones. As we age, we NEED higher levels to support normal functioning. The pharmaceutical companies and AHA have colluded for years, poisoning people with their medications that harm more than help, and heart disease continues to rise.

Read "The Oiling of America" if you want to learn the truth from scientists.
