Many of the health problems faced by women Herpeset Review in older age are the result of exposure to risk factors in adolescence and adulthood, such as smoking, sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diets. Non communicable diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases and cancers, are the biggest causes of death among older women, regardless of what country they live in and how well. Cardiovascular diseases account for 46% of older women's deaths globally, while a further 14% of deaths are caused by cancers - mainly cancers of the lung, breast, colon and stomach. Chronic respiratory conditions, mainly COPD, cause another 9% of older women's deaths.

Other health troubles experienced by elderly women that reduce bodily and cerebral utility include poor vision (including cataracts), hearing loss, arthritis, depression and dementia. In many countries women are far less likely to receive treatment or supportive aids for such conditions than men. The plight of women in such countries is deplorable.

Most of us do not want to start afresh, because of the way we have behaved in the past. We think that whatever we do now won't amount to anything because of the hard living that we have been upto. But the thing is that even if you've had some unhealthy habits throughout your lifetime, it's never too late to begin activities that will enhance your health and well-being now and in the years ahead. This advice also works if you have a chronic medical condition-you often can make lifestyle changes that will improve your health.
