ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a report from the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN) released in the U.S. in 2010, revealing the impact of menopause on midlife lipid changes. It could not be confirmed whether menopause had an impact on a woman's risk of cardiovascular disease but the SWAN report revealed several menopause-induced changes including an increase in apolipoprotein B, an increase in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and an increase in total cholesterol. Such study involved approximately 3,000 American women.
