Women need their own health reference source. Research into gender-specific medicine - particularly identifying the ways in which diseases and their treatment affect men and women differently - has gained ground in the past 25 years. While this information is familiar to the medical community, much of it is unknown to the layperson. For example, more women than men die of cardiovascular disease every year, possibly because their symptoms are not recognized. Organized by body system, each chapter starts out with an explanation of how that system works and ways to maintain healthy function through diet, exercise, and other self-help measures. This is followed by an explanation of some of the medical conditions affecting that particular system and how they should be treated - in women, not men.
