Why Are Heart Attacks Becoming More Common in Women Under Age 54?

You may already know heart disease is the most common cause of death in men and women, but some still believe cardiac issues are mostly a problem for men.

New research, however, squashes that misconception, finding that heart attacks are becoming more common among women of younger ages. Results of the study uncovered the annual number of hospitalizations for young women overall went up 32 percent between 2010 and 2014 — particularly for younger women. Some of the reasons behind this increase include increased risk factors for high blood pressure and diabetes, which can lead to a heart attack. More on this research is available at Self.
