Study finds women don't get same care as men
A new study bears bad news for women with high cholesterol—if a woman has a heart attack, she's less likely to get the timely care she needs in the ER than if she were a man. Why? The reasons are complex, from differing symptoms in women to old stereotypes, like only men have heart attacks. In any case, the best way to protect yourself is to know the warning signs of heart trouble and to demand immediate medical care.
