Smoking poses unique health risks for women, including increased risk for heart disease, lung disease and cervical cancer. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, smoking significantly increases risks for you and your baby. After menopause, smoking significantly increases risk of osteoporosis. To help women and their families quit smoking, IU Health Bedford Hospital offers smoking cessation classes.
Diet has a significant impact on a woman’s risk for heart disease and osteoporosis.
