Health issues have long plagued women.
In the early 1900s, more than 60% of women in the United States were thought to have a heart condition, but today the rate of heart disease is only 1%.

Researchers looked at the number of deaths from heart disease, heart attack, and stroke per 1,000 people, and then found that the rate in the UK was 1.16.
The US, however, was higher, with a rate of 1.17.
In other news, the U.S. has the most cardiac deaths per capita in the world.
In 2016, the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) reported that the U
