Metamucil(R), WomenHeart and 'Desperate Housewives' Star Brenda Strong Partner to Encourage 100,000 Women to Lower Their Cholesterol
Date:2/11/2009

First-Of-Its-Kind Cholesterol Screening Locator Launched

CINCINNATI, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent survey, the majority of American women don't know their cholesterol number(1). And although one in every three women are at risk for heart disease(2), the survey revealed that more than 50 percent of American women do not believe they are at risk for heart disease. To help change these statistics, Metamucil and WomenHeart, the nation's only national organization solely dedicated to promoting women's heart health, have partnered together to create tools that facilitate healthy lifestyle changes and encourage women to lower their cholesterol. The survey was conducted by Opinion Research Corporation on behalf of Metamucil and WomenHeart.
