How Her Heart Differs from His

How Her Heart Differs from His

A heart attack can cause totally different symptoms in women then in men. That’s why often heart diseases aren’t recognized in women and the diagnosis is missed. As a result women don’t get the proper treatment in time and are more at risk to die from a heart attack then men. A research among European women showed that 42 percent died within a year after their heart attack, while the mortality rate among men is 24 percent!!

Also wrote an article for Helium about abuse of elderly people by their family or primary care givers. Quite a saddening statistic. I did know that abusers try to single out the most frail and vulnerable ones.... but, your own dad or grandmother????? How low can you go?????

Anyway, if you want to read it, here you can find it:
