Heart Disease - Why Studying Both Men and Women is Important: Heart disease has generally been thought of as a “man’s” disease but is currently a leading cause of death for both men and women. This bias within cardiac research and medicine led to the development of drugs that weren’t as effective or had more severe side effects in half the population simply because women weren’t considered in basic research studies, clinical trials and almost every other step of drug development. Due to the advocacy efforts of researchers and clinicians across the world, this is changing. For this month’s Suds & Science we’ll chat about why the heart is the coolest organ (sorry brain lovers!), what is biologically different between the hearts of men and women, both during healthy times and during states of disease.
