Women’s heart health is a topic that should be on everyone’s mind, but for some reason, not many people seem to be discussing it. Unlike other women’s issues where people are mobilised and raising awareness, there don’t seem to be many people championing the cause when it comes to the heart. I don’t think I’ve ever driven somewhere without seeing a car with a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon magnet attached to it, so where are the heart disease magnets?If you’re looking for more tips, Colts Neck Women’s Heart Health has it for you.
You’d think there’d be a lot of soccer moms concerned about women’s heart health, particularly because heart disease is the leading cause of death among American women today. I’m still reading about how men die of heart attacks, but in the United States, women die of cardiovascular disease at a higher rate than men. Furthermore, 23% of women over the age of 40 who suffer a heart attack die within a year. It’s difficult to understand why this isn’t more of a women’s problem as compared to the 18 percent of their male counterparts. Where have all of Oprah’s specials gone? Where have all the cure races gone?
Even scarier, 64% of women who die unexpectedly from a heart attack have no previous symptoms. It’s a true silent killer, striking otherwise stable people at inopportune times. In addition, after the age of 40, women have a lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease of more than 50%. Worst of all, medical tests and procedures that work for men don’t always work for women. This is particularly true of ECG tests, also referred to as exercise stress tests. Overall, more people need to be conscious of the importance of women’s heart health.
