Why are we talking about men's health on a women's health website? Because men's health affects women in some pretty significant ways.
May is clearly my month! We focus on my kind of people: older women. As wise as I feel, there are things we wish we had known when we were younger
Sometimes it feels like being healthy is just a list of things we shouldn't do. The no's can steal the joy out of life. What if we told ourselves "yes" instead?
What do you see when you imagine a heart attack? Does the victim — probably a man — stop what he's doing, clutch his chest, and fall to the floor? We call that the "Hollywood Heart Attack." It doesn't paint the most accurate picture, particularly for women. The truth is: Heart attacks can be much harder to spot. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. More women than men die from their heart attacks.
Getting covered may not seem like a priority if you're young and healthy and your budget is tight, but insurance is one of the best ways for you to take control of your health. Having health insurance is empowering! It's your ticket to preventive benefits.
