For Women & the Women in Your Life

New important information about women, heart attacks, and testing:

As some of you know, i think many of my health problems came from a silent heart attack that they say i had probably a few years ago. I don't know if this would have helped me, but i am sure it might help you or a woman in your life.

and an article from the same site:

"Anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000 women every year with arteries that show up as clear on an angiogram suffer from a heart attack. Thirty-eight percent of the time, like Brown, they have the kind of plaque that doesn't show up on an angiogram, according to new research from the Cardiac and Vascular Institute at New York University Langone Medical Center. In these women, a rupture or ulcer in the plaque of their coronary arteries is behind their heart attack, but this rupture would not show up in standard angiogram."
