Women ignorant in affairs of the heart

10 Jun 03

The British Heart Foundation has suggested that women are 'dangerously unaware' of the threat posed to their sex by Coronary Heart Disease. The condition is the number one killer of both men and women but most women consider the biggest threat to be cancer. Sir Charles George of the British Heart Foundation said "Women of all ages need to be more aware of their hearts and turn increased knowledge into action to reduce their risks." Awareness campaigns have been very successful in bringing down the rates of death from breast cancer but with CHD likely to kill one woman in six, four times more than breast cancer, it is clear that healthcare professionals and the media have a key role to play in encouraging women to take better care of their hearts.
