Although heart disease is sometimes thought of as a man's disease, almost as many women as men die each year of heart disease in the United States.

Estrogen helps to protect the heart, which is why women tend to develop heart disease about 10 years later in life than men. Broken heart syndrome, also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy.
