dc.description.abstractCardiovascular disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States. Though prevalent in both genders, certain risk factors leave women especially susceptible to cardiovascular disease. Aerobic exercise has been shown to both prevent and control major risk factors. Through public awareness and outreach, women within the community will have the opportunity to learn about their risks and begin steps towards a healthier lifestyle. This paper will inform the average reader about the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system, the risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, and the history and heart-health benefits of cycling all while taking special consideration to note female-specific factors. Its purpose is to encourage women to evaluate their lifestyle, understand their cardiovascular risk factors, and begin cycling and eating well in order to live a healthier, longer life.
