Women's Health By the Numbers: 76

The lower your heart rate is the healthier you are. To a point yes. So no absolute, but generally speaking the lower your rate the fewer heart attaches and strokes you are likely to have. This was showin g in as secondary analysis of the Women's Health Initiative "WHI" study. The women who had heart rates under 76 were the least likely to have a cardiovasular event. Interestingly this fact persisted whether you are a diabetic or not a diabetic and accross ethnic groups. It was even more predictive for women in their mid 50s than women in their mid sixties.
