((Women may be getting short-changed when it comes to testing for heart problems. That's the conclusion of the latest study to look at gender differences in heart care.
VT=VO

The report, in the Journal of the American Medical Association followed more than 23 hundred men and women who went to emergency rooms with chest pain. By far, the men were more likely to undergo angio-grams, stress tests, and eco-cardiograms. When you see studies like this, it is extra important to remember that the symptoms of heart disease in women are often different than men. Instead of classic crushing heart pain like men get, women instead can get a vague discomfort in the chest, arm or even jaw. Other symptoms can include shortness of breathe nausea or easy fatigue.
VT=VO

Also from the AMA, a study which says women who carry genes that predispose them to breast cancer may live years longer by having their healthy breasts and ovaries removed. Researchers are now saying that not all women who carry these genes should have this surgery only that they should consider it. It's estimated that 5 to ten percent of all breast cancers are caused by these abnormal genes.
VT=VO

And finally today, relief from PMS. It may be spelled vegetarian. A report in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology finds women with severe PMS who gave up meat and took up low fat vegetarian got dramatic relief from monthly anxiety, depression, moodiness and bloating. The women in the study also had less severe menstrual cramping when they did get their period. The relief was so dramatic, when the three month study was over, most of the women refused to go back to their old ways of eating. ON CAM And that's a look at the day's top health stories.
