Question: How does a worsening of a woman's lifestyle affect the risk of suffering a disease? Bethlehem (Ciudad Real).
Answer: Negatively. Our life with more stress, with less time to follow a balanced diet and exercise, with more sedentary work and leisure time, etc., leads us to smoke more, eat more and worse, gain weight, worsen the profile of cholesterol and thus facilitate injury to the arteries. For example, women smoke more and more (today, 27% of Spanish women) and start smoking sooner (90% of them, before the age of 20), even smoking more than men between 14 and 18 years (almost 40% of them are smokers, and they 29%).
