Women & Beating Heart Bypass

When it comes to women and heart disease, there are some troubling findings of recent years. We know now that:

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women.
  • It kills more women than cancer, accidents and diabetes combined.
  • Heart disease is the cause of death for one out of every three women, and it kills more women than men.
  • When women have heart disease, they are more likely to die from the disease than men are.

Heart disease is not just a man's disease
Certainly heart disease is not solely a man's disease, nor should it be treated as one in terms of research, prevention, detection, or treatment.
