Those who have hot flashes at the start of menopause carry a reduced risk of heart attack and death than women who never experienced hot flashes or felt them during the late years after menopause.

The research which involved more than 60,000 women showed that those who experienced hot flashes during the late years after menopause carry a risk of heart attack.
