The Woman’s Heart Attack

That is the title of this Times piece about the difference between the male and the female heart attack. Most of us have known for a while that the symptoms are different, but in every article I’ve read the symptoms listed for a woman’s heart attack are so broad they make it sound like you could be having a heart attack almost daily.

With a few choice sentences here and there this piece manages to communicate the times when you need to react. If you’re female, I highly recommend reading it.
