Special Issue Description

The leading cause of death for women aged 35 and older is heart disease, which is no longer just a man’s disease. Cardiovascular death and heart attacks can be avoided through healthy lifestyle choices such as physical activity and a nutritious diet, as well as appropriate pharmaceutical therapy. While great strides have been made in improving men’s cardiovascular outcomes in recent decades, progress in improving women’s cardiovascular outcomes has been slow or even stalled. This could be explained by the fact that women are still understudied and underrepresented in heart disease research, despite a recent increase in female heart disease awareness.
