Stereotypes in movies cloud our minds with images of men clenching their chest as they fall to the floor. But an Indian woman is nothing short of a superwoman, especially when she has a career along with responsibilities of a family to handle. It is then only natural for heart disease to be rampant in women.“The fact that one in every 30 women has breast cancer while one in every three is a heart attack victim signifies the disproportionate attention given to awareness of cardiac problems in women,” says Dr. Sumita Choudhary, from Texas in a conversation with Dr. HK Chopra, President CSI. “A typical response to a heart problem in women is very atypical, in the way that it is devoid of all the melodrama that comes with a heart attack. Shortness of breath, fatigue, digestive problems and chest pain are few symptoms that women need to take a hint from.”In a parallel discussion with Dr. RAI Ekanayaka, President of Sri Lanka Heart Association, he points out that the glamour of industrialization and urbanization has come at a price. Air pollution causing atherosclerosis is only an instance of the many different ways in which we are paying this price. “Lost in a drive to fulfill physical needs, it’s high time we heed to the spiritual, intellectual and emotional aspects of our being.”
