Women and Heart Disease - A UCSF Doctor Discusses the Symptoms, Solutions and Best Food Choices

Rita Redberg, MD, professor of medicine in the Division of Cardiology and Director of Cardiovascular Women's Services for the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health, talks to the hosts of KGO-TV's The View from the Bay about her new book, The Betty Crocker Cookbook for Women: The Complete Guide to Women's Health and Wellness at Every Stage of Life. Redberg tells KGO heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. "One in two to three women will die of heart disease," said Redberg. "[But] heart disease is highly preventable. If you don't prevent it entirely, you can delay the onset by 10 to 20 years and enjoy a longer and healthier life."
