Women are more prone to certain health ailments compared to men. Here are the top five illnesses that a majority of women suffer from.
1. Heart diseases
Although more men have died of heart diseases, more number of women have complained of heart problems. "The symptoms for women are typical for women, and they are often missed by doctors and the patient themselves," said Mark, senior medical adviser for the Office on Women's Health at the US Department of Health and Human Services. According to reports, 29% of deaths in women are because of a heart disease. Women who have not even crossed 60 are losing their life to heart diseases, which is quite alarming.
