Critical differences exist between men and women when it comes to health and prevention; but many women remain unaware that their bodies have specific nutritional needs, can react differently to medications, and can be more vulnerable to certain diseases. For example, according to the Society for Women's Health Research, women comprise 80 percent of the population suffering from osteoporosis, and are more likely than men to have a second heart attack within a year of the first one.
"Research shows that sex matters. As such, we encourage women to be pro-active advocates for their own health," said Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, President and CEO, the Society for Women's Health Research. "National Women's Health Week is a great time to celebrate progress in women's health and educate women about the steps they can take to improve their health."
Coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and the Office on Women's Health, the 9th annual National Women's Health Week, May 11-17, encourages women to take simple steps for a longer, healthier and happier life.
