Don't take on too much

Women who care for their family and look after their home may be paying for these services with their health.

It’s well documented that women who suffer from heart disease tend to have worse symptoms and are more likely to die from the condition than men. The researchers believe that this may, in part, be the case because women tend to be burdened with the lion’s share of housework and childcare.
