Take this quiz to find out which heart disease risk factors are under your control.

When it comes to heart disease, women need to pay attention. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in women, surpassing all types of cancer. But there’s good news. About 90% of heart disease risk factors are under your control.

That means changes you make to your lifestyle and habits can have a positive effect on your heart health. Of course, there are still some risk factors out of your control, but with so many controllable risk factors, the odds are in your favor that you can reduce your overall risk.

“Screening for the risk factors of heart disease and treating those that are reversible are an important part of all women’s health. This is why I feel it is so important that all women, especially those over 40, have at least an annual physical with their primary care physician and address any concerns they have about their risk for heart disease.” –Ashley D. Bordelon, MD, Internal Medicine
