More women under 45 seeing coronary disease

Filed under:

A recent study showed that more women under the age of 45 are having heart disease (even more than men), and medical officials aren't sure what is to blame.

The usual suspects have been referenced: obesity and unhealthy lifestyle habits, but there is no clear answer yet. Is this the start of a shocking new trend? Hopefully not.

It's been said many, many times that the foods Americans eat everyday (and the lack of physical exercise) will spiral into an untenable health crisis in the next few decades. Could this new study be a precursor of things to come in that arena?

Think about that the next time you find yourself staring down that double cheeseburger or sitting on the couch as a zombie to hours pf television programming. What changes will you make come the new year?
