Signs of a Heart Attack for Woman and Sweet Potato Carrot Hazelnut Tapenade

430,000 women lose their life to heart disease each year, a number that’s higher than the annual deaths among women from all cancers combined, according to The American Heart Association. Protect yourself and your family by eating right, exercising, lowering stress, getting good medical care, and recognizing symptoms that need attention.

It begins as a sharp, burning sensation in the chest, near the breastbone or ribs. But is the pain heartburn, or might it be a heart attack?
It's often difficult for people to tell the difference. If you get the pain between 30 to 40 minutes after eating certain same foods, it's probably heartburn. If it happens without eating, you need to investigate further, that may be heart disease related. Woman have had slight heart attacks and never knew it.
