Napping Might Be Good For Women's Hearts, Too, But We're Not Sure
But speaking of heart health (!), what really infuriates me is that once again, we don't know if the results apply to women because so few women were included in the study.
Heart disease kills far, far more women every year than breast and skin cancer combined, and yet the medical research done on coronary health continues to focus almost exclusively on men. This isn't to downplay the seriousness of breast cancer and the prevalence of other cancers as killers of women (or to downplay any other cause of mortality), but the fact is that the women reading this blog are far more likely to die of plain old heart disease than of anything else.
What's it going to take to get included in these studies?????
It shocks me that this is still going on.
