Question: If you’re a woman, what are you more likely to die from: breast cancer or heart disease?
If you answered breast cancer you wouldn’t be alone, but in actual fact its heart disease by a country mile – women are five times more likely to die from heart disease than they are breast cancer in fact. Evidence shows that doctors often miss heart disease in women and under treat when it is diagnosed. The symptoms are different in women and men, and as a result women tend to ignore the warning signs, putting themselves at serious risk. A major hospital in Singapore has recognised the importance of this issue and put their money where their mouth is, opening a heart clinic just for women.
This is a must-see story for women and men alike.
