But women face some unique issues, according to the report from the nonprofit Society for Women’s Health Research and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. High cholesterol will clog arteries, and high blood pressure can cause a stroke.
One young patient says women need to know more about heart disease – and to get pushy about any symptoms.
Make no mistake: Heart disease is the leading killer of men, too. She’s learned to be more laid-back, along with a healthier diet and keeping up that exercise.
“A woman’s heart is her major health threat, and everyone who takes care of a woman has to realize that,” says Emory University cardiologist Dr. But Wenger says it’s not clear what the best treatments are.

Why the gender gap?
(CBS/AP) Heart disease may stand out as America’s leading cause of death, but the No. “Nobody knows you better than you.”
Now 37, Harris says doctors’ best guess is that a stressful lifestyle – a single mother, a full-time job, a part-time personal trainer, and studying for an advanced degree all at the same time – left her vulnerable even without obvious risk factors. The illness is more prevalent in men, and tends to hit them about a decade earlier than is usual for women. “Listen to your body,” she advises other women. According to the report, only a third of heart-related studies focus on how each gender responds, even though federal policy states all should.
As far as triggers go – being a couch potato and eating lots of junk food is just as bad for a woman’s heart as a man’s.
Doctors who suspect microvascular disease prescribe medications designed to make blood vessels relax and blood flow a bit better, while also intensively treating the woman’s other cardiac risk factors. While chest pain is the most common symptom among men and women, women are more likely than men to experience other symptoms such as shortness of breath, nausea and pain in the back or jaw.. The report says too few doctors consider these risks.
2011 CBS Interactive Inc. All Rights Reserved. Women are also more likely to die the year after a first heart attack.
Essence Harris of New Orleans was only 30 when she started experiencing shortness of breath and feeling chest pains during daily workouts. Nearly two-thirds of women who die suddenly from heart disease report no previous symptoms, compared with half of men. A cardiologist found no obvious risk either – her cholesterol and blood pressure were normal – but ordered a stress test that signaled her heart fears were right. 1 killer may be a silent killer among women. Nanette Wenger, who co-authored the report.
More than 40 percent of women also don’t realize that heart disease is the number one female killer – it strikes one in three women every year.
Another issue: There’s been a slight increase in deaths among women younger than 45. A further exam found severe blockages in two arteries that required stents to prop open.
But here’s one problem: Even if a test of major heart arteries finds no blockages, at-risk women can still have coronary microvascular disease – a serious problem that’s less common in men, in which small blood vessels that feed the heart become damaged so that they spasm or squeeze shut, Wenger explains.
A new report claims not enough progress has been made studying gender differences in heart disease. Had she not been so fit, they said, her heart might not have held out as long before symptoms appeared. Her primary care doctor thought it was panic attacks. Plus, high blood pressure, diabetes or related complications during pregnancy – a growing worry as more women start their pregnancies already overweight – aren’t just a temporary problem but increase those mothers’ risk of heart disease once they reach middle age
Philippe Coutinho is suspended to find out four more reasons why United can beat Liverpool, click the arrow above
The Brazilian magician is probably the Reds best player and undoubtedly their most potent attacking threat. His absence takes away Brendan Rodgers main creative hub and the pressure turns to Roberto Firmino who is still finding his way in the Premier League to fill his compatriots sizeable boots. The United defensive ranks should certainly have any easier 90 minutes knowing they dont have Coutinho to contain.photo 1 of 5 . Next picture
It has a lot of great players, and Pedro is certainly one.
I am happy with the midfielders we have and there is competition for all the positions, which means the players have to perform very well to win a place in the team.
The former Everton and Manchester United manager is clearly anxious to take the San Sebastin club to the next level but their only real signing of note since the end of last term has been the Brazilian forward Jonathas from relegated Elche.
David Moyes believes it is too early for Real Sociedad to target European qualification this season and says he is still looking to strengthen his squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
Illarramendi, 25, moved to the Bernabu two years ago but has been unable to hold down a regular place in their starting line-up. If a midfielder we believe can help us was available I am sure the president would be interested, Moyes said.
Moyes said he was satisfied with the new players who have arrived but added that coaches always wanted more. The Scottish manager led them to a creditable 12th place finish in his first managerial role after his sacking by Manchester United in April 2014.
Moyes also said that he expects Pedro to be a success in the Premier League after the Spain forward completed his move to Chelsea this week. I think it can take time for these players to settle, and they must be given the opportunity to do that, he said. I think Pedro coming into the Premier League will add to the quality that the league has got. He gave little away when asked about reports suggesting that the club may strike a deal to take their former midfielder Asier Illarramendi on loan from Real Madrid.
I dont think that right now we have to have Europe as a goal, Moyes told a news conference before his sides La Liga opener at Deportivo La Corua on Saturday.. I hope we can do it but I dont think we have to have that expectation from the start.
Moyes took over at Real Sociedad in November 2014 after the Basque club made a shocking start to their 2014-15 La Liga campaign. Considering what we did last season, looking to Europe is a very big step

The week-long Hometown Heroes camp is completely free for participants, including air travel, and is sponsored by donors from around the country.. For one such event, campers decorated a square of fabric in tribute to their loved one; the squares were then sewn into a quilt.
“I miss you dad, I wish I had more time with you to hang out and to mess around like the dudes that we are,” read a boy named Dylan, who lost his father when he was 6.
“Military children are often quite isolated as few can fully understand what they have experienced,” camp co-founder Neil Willenson told The Huffington Post in an email. “Ultimately, we hope children leave Camp Hometown Heroes feeling that brighter days are ahead,” Willenson said. “At last, the children are with others who understand what it is like to lose a love one who served our nation.”
In addition to standard camp activities like swimming, arts and crafts, and fishing, Hometown Heroes holds special counseling-oriented events to help kids process their grief. They lose their parent, school, friends and home all at once.”
The group also spent time fishing, during which Kylee amused Rodgers by confessing she’s not much of a football fan because “there’s too much going on.”
After he surprised them on the boat, the kids showed the quilt to Rodgers. “This isolation is heightened for children of fallen service members as once the death occurs they often move off the base quickly. Love you dad.”
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers has returned for season three of “It’s Aaron,” in which the NFL MVP visits nonprofits in and around Wisconsin to highlight the critical work they do.
In the latest episode, Rodgers spends time on a boat with four kids attending “Camp Hometown Heroes,” a free summer camp for children who have lost a loved one in the military. children have lost a parent who served in the military, Willenson told Fox 6 news. “I’m looking after mom, in a way.
“The more we do this,” Rodgers said in the video, “you just find so many amazing organizations that are right here in our backyard and are doing some incredible work with kids.”
Donations to the program can be made at hometownheroes.org.
He added that most campers return several years in a row, as “healing is not a one-time event, it is a lifelong process.”
“I love camp, but I wish the day when my dad died never came,” said Kylee, one of three sisters on the trip, reading her square for Rodgers.

The Belgian centre-back was given the responsibility of leading the team forward. Fabregas slightly edges RVP but then again, RVP had to bear with his departure. All of them have a decent record. Apparently, he’s Wenger’s class monitor, enforcing the rules in the dressing room and on the pitch. 3)Jack Wilshere – He’s my favorite to take the captaincy. In an interview, it was revealed that he and Podolski crack a lot of jokes and keep the atmosphere light. Yet, he is mentally very strong and he probably won’t have to bear the pressure of too much loss (Bacary Sagna, if he leaves). Who was responsible? Thoms Vermaelen. On a number of occasions this season, he completely dominated the opposition and decimated defenses with his brilliant plays with Podolski and Cazorla. He is the Steven Gerrard of Arsenal. Here are some of the players who could be captain this coming season:
2) Mikel Arteta – The Spaniard led the outfit in 15 games and did an impressive job; the number of games, however, isn’t enough to judge his leadership abilities. He loves the club. He fired his agent because “he’s never leaving Arsneal”. His record shows a loss percentage of only 28% which isn’t very impressive, but not too shabby either.
The table below gives a rough idea of the success of the skippers who have been plagued by the curse. He showed great leadership in times of despair and has always, and I mean always, backed the club.
If you think someone else should be the captain this season, please mention it in a comment and give your reason for the same. He is unquestionably the backbone of the midfield and would do a good job keeping the team together.
Hopefully, the curse will lift soon. However, the present squad seems more like a team, than any of the previous squads have, and I think the last 10-12 games gave us an idea on how the team matured and transformed over the season. How? They had committed the maximum number of errors that led to goals. While in the first few matches, the team looked strong, Vermaelen didn’t look like he was quite fulfilling his potential. While a number of fans wrote it off to inadequate pre-season activity, the third-minute slip in the box against Manchester United, when confronting RVP (yes, our ex-captain) gave a lot to ponder about.
1) Thomas Vermaelen – As I said earlier, the Belgain had a better period of captaincy towards the end, even though he only started one game in the last 12. Using the same analogy, Vermaelen could be given one more season to show how he fares, considering that the loss of RVP to our main rivals is way more pressurizing than the loss of Fabregas, who postponed his departure and whose exit was imminent.
Other possible options could be Laurent Koscielny and Lukas Podolski, though I think both are hitting peak now and it’s best that the pressure of leading the team not be heaved onto their shoudlers.
It was evident that the pressure was getting to the Belgain as that loss was followed by a number of draws and losses, While he did win games here and there, Arsenal had one of the worst defenses in the first half of the season. He’s also a very dignified player on the pitch, rarely making intentional, ill-willed tackles.
The curse had struck, even if through a different mean.
Prospects for the 2013-14 season. The curse of the Arsenal captaincy can be done away with this season; who do you think should be the next Arsenal captain, so he can lift the curse, and maybe, some silverware while we’re at it?
4) Per Mertsackr – Yes, the Big Friendly Giant. To me, it’s just the psychology of the players and it can be very psychologically damaging when your best players leave. While by the end of the season, he had a win percentage greater than 50%, it was clear that he wasn’t fit to handle the captaincy as it had also lost him his place in the Belgian national starting line up.
It seems that Thomas Vermaelen wants to stay and fight for his spot in the Arsenal squad, even if it puts his position in the national team in absolute jeopardy. The chaos surrounding the club was much lesser this season as Wenger had already made arrangements for a situation where RVP left. He’s 22, the same age at which Fabregas became captain
By winning the FIFA World Cup 2010, Spain have become first-time champions, and are also the first European team to win a world cup that has been held outside the continent of Europe.
Spain continued their run of 1-0 victories to outclass the Netherlands and add the FIFA World Cup of 2010 title to their kitty. The Dutch were down to 10 men in the 111th minute, which set up Spain’s goal. The win gave Germany 3rd place for the second world cup running, and the 4th place was Uruguay’s best performance in 40 years.
FIFA WORLD CUP 2010 CHAMPIONS
(red = knocked out, green = progressed)
Yes, Octopus Paul Allen got it right again. This is their first world cup title ever, and the Netherlands will rue their miss, as it is their 3rd time as a losing finalist, and they have never managed to win the tournament ever. Uruguay took the lead early in the 2nd half, but Germany got the equalizer almost immediately. In another game on Saturday, Germany managed to get the better of Uruguay 3-2, to take third place.
Spain 1 Netherlands 0 (FINAL)
The regular 90 minutes saw no goals, and one thought that this was another tournament that would decide the winner on penalties. The game saw some tight defense by the Dutch, whose strategy to nullify the flamboyant Spanish attack seemed to be working well. In the 116th minute, just 4 minutes away from a penalty shootout, Andres Iniesta found the net for Spain. Sami Khedira headed one in the net for Germany in the 82nd minute to give them back the lead, and the game was nearly forced into extra time when a last-minute stunner from Forlan of Uruguay hit the German goal’s crossbar. But the 2010 FIFA World Cup ended differently. Espaa bien hecha!
Germany 3 Uruguay 2 (THIRD PLACE)
The game was tied at one a piece at half time. It was just the last 10 minutes of play that changed the game, with the sending off of John Heitinga, and the Spaniards scoring 5 minutes later.
