Expat health insurance policyholders who are concerned about heart disease should consult a medical professional.
The advice comes from the British Heart Foundation, whose research found just one in ten women aged after 50 have been to a doctor with concerns about cardiac heath.
Indeed, less than half (47 per cent) of those surveyed said they would call the emergency services immediately if they were showing signs of having a heart attack, while seven per cent said they would ignore all symptoms and carry on.
Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director for the heart health charity, commented: "These results show serious gaps in the way women are thinking about their heart health. They highlight the common myth that heart disease is a middle-aged male health problem which simply doesn't affect women in the same way."
The news comes as the Winnipeg Free Press reports heart disease and cancer were the two leading causes of death in Canadians in 2007, being cited as the biggest factor in half of the country's 235,217 deaths that year.
