Culture & Criticism Since 2003
There has been a long-standing misconception that heart attacks are a part of a male disease process – the result of big guys eating steak, drinking whiskey and smoking cigarettes. But nothing could be further from the truth. In Heart Solution For Women, Menolascino sets out to dispel this silly myth once and for all, saying: “We’ve neglected womens’ hearts, women are dying [and] we need a better solution.” Via this impeccably designed treatise, Menolascino first outlines the myriad unique ways that heart disease presents in women (such as with anxiety attacks and poor sleep patterns), and then offers a comprehensive cardiac-health plan specifically designed for females. What’s best about Heart Solution For Women is found in the new data that Menolascino provides: Details on the role inflammation plays in cardiac abnormalities; how childhood traumas contribute to heart disease; and the way that female hormones impact heart-health serve to augment widely-known details on nutrition, heredity and cholesterol. Stitched together, the information formulates a foundational text that illuminates how women should approach protecting against their number-one killer. Written in a conversational tone that speaks to universal accessibility, Heart Solution For Women is a book that men will want to check out, too. After all, it’s your wives, daughters, sisters and mothers that Menolascino is spotlighting here.
