Kardiovaskuläre Erkrankungen stellen die häufigste Todesursache bei Frauen und Männern in den westlichen Industrienationen dar. In den USA z. B. stirbt ein Drittel der Frauen an der koronaren Herzkrankheit (250 000 Todesfälle pro Jahr). Frauen weisen vor der Menopause offenbar einen biologischen Schutz gegen die koronare Herzkrankheit auf, was sich in einem im Vergleich zu Männern 10–12 Jahre späteren Auftreten der koronaren Herzkrankheit widerspiegelt [5, 20].
