In a post yesterday we talked about stress related heart issues in women. Heart attacks just simply are not that rare in women and more should be done to be proactive about it. Lifestyle changes and regular checkups should be at the top of the list.

I ran across a site today that is all about heart disease and women. I especially liked their online heart checkup. There are two compelling reasons to go through these online evaluations. If you are up to date on all of your health related numbers, you can plug it all in and see what your heart disease risk really is. If you don’t have a clue about some of the information they ask for, you need to do some serious thinking about how seriously you take your health.

Bottom line. People who get regular checkups and know about their health outlive those who don’t. They also pay less for their life insurance.
