What Kills Women Most Commonly?

WHO lists the leading causes of death in women, and shows us how developed and underdeveloped nations differ.  It varies from country to country, and there are some shockers, in England, it's dementia that kills the most women! The rates differ by states as well. The National Center for Health Statistics last released data on what women, per age group, die of in 2004. The provisional data for 2011 is now available for comparisons on line. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm
In the last tabulation if you were between 19 and 64 years old you are most likely to diet of malignant neoplasms. If you are 65 years or older you are most likely to die of diseases of the heart. If you are younger than age 19 then you are most likely to die of an accident or unintentional injury. They do list the top ten conditions that cause mortality in women, it's interesting to browse and think about what health screenings could help you prevent these conditions. Although not all forms are fatal 2 or 3 women age 55 are likely to develop some form of cardiovascular disease during their lifetime. As we in the US move to Universal Health Care coverage, and the essential screenings begin to be emphasized, those who haven't had screening tests such as breast exams, pelvic examinations, paps or mammograms need to get right in for those examinations.Come in and gab with your gyno if you need to know more!
