Cardiovascular Health for Women!

If you search cardiovascular health for women on Google you will obtain 17 million results.  Search breast health for women and you will obtain almost 41 million results.  Almost 2.5 times more results for breast health over cardiovascular health for women, yet American women are 4 to 6 times more likely to die of heart disease than of breast cancer.

This is not to say that breast cancer information isn’t important or to discount all the work done to bring this to the attention of our society.  It’s vitally important.

But so is targeted information for cardiovascular health for women.  This information is so important that it has the potential to save even more lives than any other health education program, especially when there is a natural solution.

Cardiovascular Health for Women Could Save Millions of Lives!

So I’m on a mission to educate women in this area.  A mission that has the potential to save millions of lives from the number one cause of death for both men and women worldwide.

As I was gathering information for this article I came across the following quote from Kofi Annan, the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize Winner:

When women thrive, all of society benefits, and succeeding generations are given a better start in life.”

What a profound and true statement.  Women are caregivers to their family, friends, and eventually to themselves.  I would like to educate you in this area of cardiovascular health for women so that you can take care of yourself as well as your family and friends. Together we can help save millions of lives from cardiovascular disease and illness. We can help them live vibrant and healthy lives by paying attention to the core problem of most cardiovascular disease.

I’ve always found the best place to start any journey is at the beginning.  We need to see where we are at to better understand where we need to go.  Here are some startling statistics from a wide variety of experts in the area of cardiovascular health for women.

According to

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women over 65 years of age.
  • Heart disease kills more women over 65 years of age than all cancers combined.

According to the Mayo Clinic:

  • Although heart disease is often thought of as a problem for men, more women than men die of heart disease each year.

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality:

  • Experts estimate that one in two women will die of heart disease or stroke, compared with one in 25 women who will die of breast cancer.

Cardiovascular Health for Women Starts With The Endothelium!

The message is clear.  It is time to pay attention to cardiovascular health for women.  Most people think we need to place our attention on heart health.  While this is important, it is not the root cause of most cardiovascular disease.  According to the American Heart Association 2004 Heart and Stroke Statistical Update, arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis accounted for nearly 75% of all deaths from heart disease.

Arteriosclerosis is hardening of the arteries.  Atherosclerosis is plaque formations building up inside the vascular system.  Cardiovascular health for women really centers on your vascular system more than your heart.  The key to your vascular system is the health of your endothelium.

What!  You’ve never heard of the ENDOTHELIUM!

It doesn’t surprise me since most people have never heard of this organ.  Yet the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to three American researches that discovered how this organ converts an amino acid called L-arginine into nitric oxide, which is the master signaling molecule for your entire cardiovascular system. You could not live without nitric oxide and it’s your endothelium that controls its production. Both are critically important if we are to achieve improvements in cardiovascular health for women.

Please join me for my next article as I help you discover this Nobel Prize Winning Science about an organ that actually controls most of your cardiovascular system.  It’s the key to saving a million lives.  It’s the organ that needs attention if improved cardiovascular health for women and their loved ones is to change the health of America and our world.

Together we can share how cardiovascular health for women could save a million lives!

No More Heart Disease Videos

At one time heart disease was the number one fear of most people.  Then came cancer and today most people would identify Alzheimer’s disease as their number one fear.  Yet as these different diseases have had a significant impact on the health of our nation, heart disease is still the number one cause of death for both men and women. 

To help you understand both the severity of heart disease, and the potential for a remarkable reversal to the devastating effects of this disease, my two friends Paul Conterio and Richard Logsdon have developed a professional audio/visual presentation.  This presentation is broken down into three parts.  Just click on each image for that video section to play!

No More Heart Disease Part 1

No More Heart Disease Video Part 1In 5 minutes and 21 seconds this video will show you the sobering impact that cardiovascular disease has and continues to have on the health of both men and women.  We all remember September 11, 2001 when terrorists killed 2,974 innocent men, women, and children.  This act brought our nation to a standstill.  It impacted the United States and the World in general.  Yet, everyday is a 9/11 in America because approximately 2,500 people die of heart disease each and every day. 


The terrorist is cardiovascular disease.  Loved ones and families are brought to a standstill and the impact is felt through out our communities.  This video will help you realize that heart disease is 12 times more deadly to women than breast cancer; and more deadly in one year than the combined total of all deaths from all the wars America has fought in.    


Watch this video to understand the scope of this deadly problem in America and world wide.

So what’s the answer to stopping cardiovascular disease and its deadly effects on men and women?  Part 2 presents a direct answer to this threat.  In fact, the answer won a Nobel Prize. 


Since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been award to individuals who have made a major impact on our society.  Of particular note are four Nobel Prize winners that have had a tremendous influence on the health of people world wide.  They are: 

  • 1901 – Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen for the discovery of X-rays!
  • 1923 – Frederick Banting and John Macleod for the discovery of insulin!
  • 1945 – Sir Alexander Fleming, Ernst Boris Chain and Sir Howard Walter Florey for the discovery of penicillin!
  • 1998 – Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system! 


Most people have had an x-ray taken at some time in their life.  If you’re a diabetic than you understand how critical insulin is to your health.  And, at some point in time, you most likely received penicillin to keep an infection in check or eliminated it completely.  However, most people have never heard of Nitric Oxide yet it has the power to prevent cardiovascular disease and do it without drugs or surgery. 



Watch this video and see why Dr. Louis J. Ignarro’s book entitled NO More Heart Disease is a national bestseller.

No More Heart Disease Part 3

This video will show you how your body’s endothelial cells, which line your blood vessels, can be your lifesaver from heart disease. 

Your body has approximately 100,000 miles of blood vessels.  The proper understanding of their health, especially the health of your endothelial cells, is critical to the prevention of heart disease.  Central to this whole process is your body’s ability to produce Nitric Oxide which is regulated by the endothelial cells.  The amino acid L-arginine is the source your endothelial cells use to create nitric oxide. 

How effective is L-arginine and nitric oxide in preventing heart and cardiovascular disease?  Dr. J. Joseph Prendergast is on the cutting edge of this combination.  The results, especially for his large patient population of diabetics, are nothing short of miraculous. 

Watch this video to learn how Dr. Prendergast has virtually eliminated the need for cardiovascular surgery in his practice.

This blog is designed to educate you and provide you with cutting edge information that can have a significant impact on your cardiovascular health.  Dr. Ignarro’s book NO More Heart Disease is available thru 

Dr. Prendergast formulated ProArgi-9 Plus and I’ve provided a link to give you more information about this product. 

These are resources that can make a positive difference in the health of your cardiovascular system.  They are resources that can save lives.  I hope you’ve enjoyed the three videos above and will share them with others. 

Together we can work to save a million lives!
