These results show how much less at risk for a dangerous heart disease are women who lead a healthy lifestyle, compared with those who do not want to give up bad habits.
If you answered A, then the risk is reduced:
1 - by 46%
2 - by 59%
3 - by 67%
4 - by 92%
The lifestyle of those women who, responding “yes”, exceed the parameters on all counts (exercise more often or eat more vegetables and fruits), protects them even more reliably from sudden cardiac arrest in the future.
