According to the World Health Organization (WHO, 2011), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are a set of blood vessel and heart disorders. Mostly, CVD is caused by the accumulation of extra plaque on the outer layer of a large blood—this is also referred to as ‘atherosclerosis’. This excess plaque disrupts the flow of blood to the brain or to the heart which causes heart attacks (Eaker et al., 1993). As reported by the American Heart Association (2006), almost 70% of the total population of the United States has cardiovascular disease... ?Running Head: Biology Gender-Based Differences in...
