MUMBAI: As against the general perceptionthat heart diseases are more prevalent in men, a recent study has said that women in India are equally prone to cardiac ailments and in fact more at a risk of such threats today than three years back.

The three-year long Saffolalife study, which is the country's largest study on risk factors causing heart disease, revealed that three out of every five women out of the 51.7 thousand urban India female respondents are at cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk.

It is astonishing to note that this high risk of heart disease sets in as early as 35 years of age in women. Even women at the age of 35-44 years have the high-risk rate of CVD.

The study was conducted in twelve leading metro and non-metro cities of India on 1.6 lakh urban people out of which, 32 percent respondents were females and 92 percent of them were less than 60 years of age. The data from the study was analysed by IMRB International.
