The Irish Heart Foundation is running a 'red alert' campaign for the month of September in which they are focusing on women's heart health. While heart disease and stroke is the leading cause of death for Irish women, awareness is low. Just over 1 in 10 women believe cardiovascular disease is the number one killer and only 1 in 5 women know that menopause is a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. More information about the disease can be found here.
