Not just a ‘guy thing’

red heart

 

Tomorrow, wearing red won’t just be a fashion statement, but a chance to raise awareness for a disease affecting women all over the nation.  National Wear Red Day allows women to inspire others to take a stand against the #1 killer of women – heart disease. 

 

Fact:  One in 4 women will die from heart disease, while one in 30 dies of breast cancer.

 

Typically thought of as a man’s disease, heart disease is affecting women at a substantial rate.  The good news is that heart disease is often preventable!  Take action against heart disease by making the choice now to lead a healthier lifestyle.  Incorporating healthy foods and physical activity in your life will decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol and chances of diabetes – all risk factors in developing this deadly disease.

 

If you want to learn more about these types of lifestyle changes and how they impact your chance of heart disease, take this simple quiz from the American Heart Association.

 

Don’t forget tomorrow to pull out your Red Dress (or shirt, tie, pin) and be a part of the movement!
