Although young women strive to be healthy, few perceive themselves as at risk for heart disease and they worry far more about stress and mood disorders than their heart health, according to two preliminary studies presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology and Prevention | Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health Scientific Sessions 2019, a premier global exchange of the latest advances in population-based cardiovascular science for researchers and clinicians. "We know that health behaviors and heart disease risk factors track strongly from childhood into adulthood, and that prevention of heart disease must start with youth, so we wanted to know what adolescent and young adult women knew about the risk of heart disease and what factors influenced their understanding and their behaviors," said Holly Gooding, M.D., M.S., assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital, who was lead author of the study on health … [Read more...] about More immediate concerns beat heart health in the priorities and behaviors of young women
(Reuters Health) - African American women with abnormal mammograms may be less likely than those from other ethnic and racial groups to recognize the barriers to follow-up care that can delay a breast cancer diagnosis or to seek help overcoming them, a U.S. study suggests. Many barriers to obtaining routine screening mammograms - whether it’s lack of insurance, transportation or awareness - can contribute to delayed breast cancer diagnoses and lead to lower survival odds, researchers note in the journal Cancer. While previous research has found that black women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer when it’s advanced and harder to treat, less is known about how women’s awareness of their own barriers to healthcare might impact their outcomes. For the current study, researchers examined data on 3,754 women who were seen at Chicago hospitals serving low-income neighborhoods who required follow-up care for abnormal mammogram results. All of the women … [Read more...] about Race may impact help-seeking by women facing barriers to breast…

But when a Leftist speaks about an issue of the day, particularly a politician or someone in the media, they have no problem singling out white people as the cause of it in a way, were whites doing the same thing to people of color, the outrage … [Read more...] about NBC goes full RACIST, says the problem with America is “white women”

President Donald Trump has historically low favorability among women, with the Pew Research Center now reporting that 63 percent of women disapprove of how he is doing his job—compared with 30 percent who approve. That might not be surprising, given the range of things that Trump has said and done that might be seen as offensive to women. There’s the famous “Access Hollywood” tape that gave rise to thousands of pussy hats, the 22 women who have publicly accused him of sexual harassment and assault, and the hush money his personal lawyer has admitted to paying to cover up marital indiscretions. There is Trump’s tendency to insult women, from Carly Fiorina to Megyn Kelly to Mika Brzezinski. Most recently, there was his rally in Mississippi, during which the president mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Brett Kavanaugh, who has since been confirmed to the Supreme Court, had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. Trump’s … [Read more...] about Is Trump Driving Women Away From the GOP for Good?
