Today (Feb. 5) is National Wear Red Day to support the fight against heart disease. Surprisingly, heart disease (not cancer or diabetes) is the No. 1 killer of American women. So let’s all show we care today and wear something red!
Another way to lend support is to make a donation to assist medical research, raise awareness, and fund education and community programs that help women live longer, stronger heart-healthy lives.
Seven simple steps to improve your heart health are:
- Stay active
- Eat better
- Reduce your blood sugar
- Manage your blood pressure
- Control your cholesterol
- Lose weight
- Stop smoking
You can also shop the Go Red online store, where you may just find something cute to wear on that other special day to wear red.
