Tailoring Cardiac Care for Women



Developing heart centers that specialize in women's cardiology care is of growing importance, not only for women's health, but for hospitals seeking improved economic returns.

I hate to say it, but this is pure sexism. For years, politicized feminists have used misleading statements to prompt health funders, especially the government, to divert more of the gender-based health resources to improving women's health. In other words, they want UNequal treatment of the sexes. That's the defining principle of a sexist. Now consider: on average, men incur heart disease about ten years sooner than women and die of it at a much higher rate at every age. So how is it that the first fact is correct? Because as a group women are lucky enough to outlive men by about five years. That means there are about 5 million more women than men at the very old ages when both sexes are at the highest risk of heart disease. Not only do men on average die sooner than women of heart disease and at a higher rate at every age, they die sooner of the 12 other leading causes of death, including cancer and stroke. The real, hidden cruelty of women's heart-disease advocates is this: they take the male's shorter life span and use it against men to benefit women. The group losing out most? Black men, who have the highest death rate of all. Helping only the longer-living sex to live longer is like helping only the higher-earning sex to earn more. How would feminists and other women's advocates feel about that? Exactly the way men should feel about the promotion of women's health over men's.
