New study suggests that older women who eat alone have poorer nutritional knowledge and intake and a
higher prevalence of angina. As women age, their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) exceeds

research is focused on various risk factors. A new study suggests that eating alone may contribute to an
increased risk of heart disease in older women. Study results are published online in Menopause.
