How has heart disease affected
Joy Behar: I
am the recipient of a gene, I think
possibly, because my mother had her
first heart attack when she was 50
years old. An uncle, who is
her brother, had a sudden heart
attack and died at the age of 58.
Both my grandparents on my mother’s
side died of heart attacks.
So, there you have it. It is
not a pretty picture.
Gary Barg: What
do women need to know about the
risks of having sudden heart attacks
and what should they do if they
think they are experiencing one?
I think it is sort of logical in a
way. If you feel like you are
having a heart attack, you should
call 911 immediately. Bayer
has an aspirin awareness campaign
going on and has put out a tote
which you can carry in your bag.
Tell him about it, Eve.
