"More women die of heart disease than men," said
Heart disease is followed by lung and colorectal cancer and stroke. What each shares is that they do not have to be fatal and most can be prevented through proper diet and exercise.

This is another incentive for women to stay on top of their heart health. Women who have had a serious cardiac episode can pay 50 to 100 percent more for a standard term life insurance policy at a Table 2 or Table 4 rating. If a policyholder pays
