We spent months completely rebuilding our already great site for phones and tablets - whilst still catering to desktops and laptops. Why? We want you to have access to your global heart community where and when you need it - such as on the bus, in a waiting room, at the mall, in bed, etc. According to pewinternet.org, as at April 2012, 55% of cellphone owners access the Internet via their phones (more than doubled in 3 years) - 31% access the Internet "mostly" through their phones. If you like mobile access please use the "like" button below & try telling others about us - via your phone!
HeartNewsLinks (HNL) links you with all the world's heart people and groups.
We point you to charities, support groups & professionals that do amazing work.
We aggregate and present what you need: information, news, research, clinical trials & videos.
We connect you to others who know what it's like in your shoes.
What's different with us?
Charities must be registered in a country's jurisdiction - meaning they can't operate elsewhere.
By linking all groups in a global heart community, we help you reach beyond borders to find what you need.
Watch the video below to see how HeartNewsLinks.com is different.
HeartNewsLinks.com gets visitors from over 120 countries ... representing about 6,270 million (91.2%) of the world's population. We're very proud of this, yet we ask your help spreading the Heart Awareness Cause even further. Please share our site.

A recent study shows that women are twice as likely to endure Coronary Heart Disease or stroke if they enter menopause early - before 46.
Menopause is when the possibility of pregnancy ends for a woman, characterized by slowing hormonal cycles, halted menstruation and egg creation, as well as less estrogen and progesterone production. The onsets and rates of menopause are influenced by factors such as smoking, diet, exercise, and heredity. For instance, Hispanic and African-American women experience an earlier onset of menopause than white women.
The leader of the study says:
"Cardiovascular disease processes and risks start very early in life, even though the heart attacks and strokes happen later in life. Unfortunately, young women are often not targeted for prevention, because cardiovascular disease is thought to be only attacking women in old age. What our study reaffirms is that managing risk factors when women are young will likely prevent or postpone heart attacks and strokes when they age."
