Heart Attacks Harder For Women, Blacks
Women live longer than men, so you would think they would live longer after a heart attack. No so, according to a new Reuters report.
White people who had a heart attack after age 70 lived an average of nine years afterwards, according to the report. Compare that to seven years for Black people.
On average, men lost about 3.5 years of life, while women lost 5.5. Whites overall lost an average of 4.5 years of life; Black people, 5.5.
