What's killing women? Sex disparity and the shifting landscape of age-related disease | Australasian Science Magazine

www.australasianscience.com.au [cached]

Population health researcher Professor Cassandra Szoeke outlines what ails women as they grow older, how men differ from women in age-related diseases, and how public awareness and personal lifestyle change have been shown to have a positive impact on women's quality of life in their later years.
Our guest today on Up Close is Professor Cassandra Szoeke, a neurologist at the University of Melbourne. Cassandra is a chief investigator on a large Australian longitudinal study on lifestyles and aging and has led research programs in government and CSIRO the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation. Her work has focused on a particularly vulnerable group, women. She's the director of the Women's Healthy Aging Project and an expert in age related disability and disease with the view to improving the human health span. Welcome to Up Close Cassandra. CASSANDRA SZOEKE Thank you very much. Cassandra set the scene for us regarding the global burden of disease. What has changed over a few generations? CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE There's a lot of work done recently on gender disparity. CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE Cassandra what would it take for governments to really take longitudinal long term studies seriously, like for 30 years? CASSANDRA SZOEKE In this episode we're talking about the global burden of age related disease and disability especially in women with neurologist Cassandra Szoeke. Cassandra you've done a major study on the health of aging of women aged 45 and over. What have you found, give us the numbers? CASSANDRA SZOEKE We've done a few things. CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE Cassandra, I want to know how much does stress play a part in women's health? Is it a really big impact? CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE Cassandra what does it mean to die from dementia? Just clarify that for us. CASSANDRA SZOEKE I'm Andi Horvath and our guest today is neurologist Professor Cassandra Szoeke. We're talking about understanding and enhancing wellbeing in aging societies and factors especially applicable to women right here on Up Close. Cassandra whilst we sense it's important to have meaningful connections and social connections with people, what exactly is the impact of wellbeing on aging individuals? CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE Cassandra where do we start to mitigate the age related disorders for the next generation of aging individuals? Whilst I hear prevention is the key, but we need another line of attack. Could it be earlier detection of some of these age related diseases? Where do we go? CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE Cassandra do women prioritise their health differently? CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE CASSANDRA SZOEKE We've been speaking about understanding aging with the view to optimise our health span in our life span with Professor Cassandra Szoeke from the University of Melbourne.

63.4 percent of Aussie adults are fat, but smokers are down to 14.5

The newspaper cites Cassandra Szoeke, director of the Healthy Ageing Project at the University of Melbourne, as saying that people were more receptive to the health messages around alcohol ("don't drink too much") and smoking ("don't smoke") than healthy eating or exercise advice, depending on the person.
"Poor diet, low physical activity, smoking, excess alcohol, excess weight and high blood pressure all contribute to heart disease, depression, diabetes and even arthritis," says Cassandra.
