Women and Heart Diease

Since our heart is a vital organ in our body, naturally we would want nothing to harm it. Some people find it surprising that negative emotions such as frustration, worry and anger put us as women more at risk for heart disease.  The reason being for us women for being more at risk is for the fact that we are born with more intense emotions. Females feel more joy deeper than men we also take setbacks and disappointments to heart more than men. Did you ladies know there is something called broken heart syndrome? Women are also more than likely to have this condition more than men, GO FIGURE!

Broken Heart syndrome is also called stress- included cardiomyopathy.
