Statistics indicate that, on average, women live about five years longer than men, but, because they live longer, women are at greater risk for age-related conditions like Alzheimer disease. They also experience gender-related health care needs and are more likely than men to have certain other disorders. Women's Health Concerns Sourcebook, 4th Edition, explains female anatomy; reports on women's health and wellness issues; and discusses breast health, sexual and reproductive issues, conditions that disproportionately affect women, and the leading causes of death and disability in women, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
