Higher Risk of Death For Women With Heart Attack

Several studies have shown that women have a higher mortality rate than men if they have a heart attack.  A study published in the American Heart Journal  helps to explain why.  The researchers looked at data from 2,542 women who had a heart attack.  Compared to men, the women were older, less likely to be white and less likely to smoke.  They also had more serious health conditions than the men.
