Preview is only available to registered and logged in users.

Episode Description:

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for nearly 600,000 deaths a year, with more than half of the deaths occurring in men. Yet cardiovascular disease – heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure – is the number one cause of death in American women, claiming more women’s lives than all cancers combined. Why are women more threatened by heart disease than other illnesses? What are the gender differences that play a role in this condition? Are there differences among racial or ethnic groups? What is hindering preventive efforts? And what can be done to reduce the threat?
