Experience Drives Henner's Nutrition Advocacy

Marilu HennerMarilu Henner's interest in health began after she lost her father to heart disease and her mother to arthritis complications. After struggling with dozens of diets, she became committed to finding better ways of getting in shape and staying strong. She is now an outspoken proponent of preventive medicine through better nutrition.

Ms. Henner recently spoke in Washington, D.C., on behalf of the Society for Women's Health Research, where she urged the medical community to increase its efforts to educate women about their risk for heart disease. She spoke of her dismay in seeing a female friend suffer a heart attack when the media so often depicts it as a "man's disease." She urged the audience of health professionals to put prevention initiatives on top of their health care agendas, including information on the power of low-fat, vegetarian diets for reducing heart disease and many other chronic illnesses.
