Sridevi Kapoor, one of Bollywood's biggest stars, passed away of a heart attack on Sunday. The 54-year-old's death highlights the recent rise of heart attack cases in women. While the full details about her death have not yet been revealed, a new study has found women are three times more likely to die after experiencing a heart attack, the Daily Mail reported. They are also less likely to be prescribed crucial medication for the health issue.

Because it is predominantly seen as a male issue, researchers say women are often not provided treatment. "We need to work harder to shift the perception that heart attacks only affect a certain type of person," co-author Chris Gale, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the University of Leeds, told the Daily Mail.
