Think for a moment about diseases that affect women. What comes to mind? Breast cancer? Other types of #cancer

While cancer is certainly a concern, the fact is nearly twice as many women die from heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.

4 Things to Know about Women and Heart Disease:

1. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women.

2. Heart disease affects men and women differently. One difference may be hormonal: Estrogen is thought to offer some protection against heart disease. After #menopause, women no longer have this protection, which may explain why women tend to get heart disease later in life than men.

3. Women have different heart attack symptoms than men. Chest pain during a heart attack is a common symptom for both men and women, but the signs leading up to the attack can be very different. Women’s symptoms often start up to a month before the heart attack and can be more much more subtle, which is why women may not realize they are in danger.

4. Not all fat is bad for your heart.
