Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America. Every year half a million women die of heart problems and another 2.5 million are hospitalized for heart disease. The aim of this book is to bring into focus the risks and realities of cardiovascular disease in women. It recognizes and clarifies the significant differences between men and women in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions. The book lays out in plain English all that is currently known about preventing, recognizing and living with a heart problem. Does an aspirin a day prevent heart disease? Does moderate alcohol consumption hurt or help, what about weight gain in middle age or oestrogen replacement therapy? These are the kinds of everyday questions that the book addresses. It also considers questions of cholesterol and diabetes, stress and depression, diet and smoking. Diagnostic and surgery procedure is explored and their differing reliability and benefits in men and women are discussed.
