February is Heart Research Month. Heart disease is the largest killer of Australians, affecting 2 out of 3 families. Heart Research Month aims to raise awareness about the impact of heart disease, and the need for continuing research. Heart Research Australia focus on obtaining funds to conduct the research that will find breakthrough treatments for heart disease.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) Australia’s Health 2012, four times as many women die from Coronary Heart Disease (heart attack and angina) than breast cancer, and three times as many men die from Coronary Heart Disease (heart attack and angina) than prostate cancer.
