Mammogram vs breast exam: regarding my wife who works, amazingly, at a health insurance company!

When there's questionable or half-hearted insurance coverage for employees, most folks incorrectly blame the carrier (Cigna, BC/BS, et al). Actually, as you know, this is the makings and doing of the employer who, being men, often cut back on women's health preventative care. That's a 'duh' statement.

I'm sharing a video with you guys...this person was famous in the olympics, though I was a little kid. She's almost exactly the same age as my wife Renae and I do a lot of research on heart health because she's got a lot of trouble in the female side of her family. This famous olympian and my wife converge with me because heart health and heart disease, like many aspects of womens' health, are completely overlooked and ignored.

One of my gripes, see, about womens' health is that, say, if men decide to pour billions into 'health' issues such as erectile dysfunction and meanwhile women get squeezed between American workplace AND traditional nurturers, suffer heart disease WAY more than they did in the 1960's....

Peggy Fleming has been a spokeslady for refined CoQ10 though I'm not trying to sell it here; she and Renae are in their own leagues as examples of how strikingly beautiful the ladies are of the generation of women who broke out of 'simple homemaker' roles ..all while being too nice to say a word or RECEIVE a word about how hard their pioneering was on them. If you know who Peggy Fleming is but haven't heard her name in awhile, here's what a lady (b. 1948) with adult children is doing in terms of lighting up the way for the rest of us.
Thanks for allowing my melodrama! site with embedded video;

(eventually people 60+ will know more of heart-health CoQ10 ubiquinol, though I'm not selling it and don't work for Swanson's Health Co---but just LOOK how pretty this 62-yr-old lady is!!!! Does anybody remember her, you guys? Again, I was too young in '68 to have any recollection..) My wife's even prettier. (Commercial link removed by moderator.)
