What are the top 5 health concerns for women?
Cardiovascular disease needs to be moved up to the #1 position on this Top 5 list - it kills 5-6 times more women, for example, than breast cancer does each year, and in fact kills more women than ALL forms of cancer combined. It kills more women than men annually, too - and that stat has been true each year since 1984.
But there's good news on the horizon: according to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, up to 80% of cardiovascular disease is preventable through non-drug lifestyle improvements - like healthy eating (Mayo Clinic recommends some version of the well-known Mediterranean diet), not smoking, effective stress management, and most importantly, daily physical activity.
As cardiologist Dr. John Mandrola likes to say: "You only have to exercise on the days you plan to eat!"Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What is the areola?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Areola is a term generally used to describe the area of dark-colored skin on the breast that surrounds the nipple. Areola can also be used to describe other small circular areas, such as the area around an inflamed pimple.
The size and shape of the areola varies from person to person, but mature women for the most part have larger areolae than men and adolescents.
This answer is based on source information from the National Cancer Institute.
