Today is National Wear Red Day, a part of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, and is a simple, but powerful, way to call attention to heart disease and stroke.
Heart disease often is thought of as a “man’s disease,” but it is the leading cause of death for both women and men in the U.S., and women account for 52 percent of the total heart disease deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Go Red for Women movement strives to educate women about their risk for heart disease and stroke, how to recognize signs of a heart attack or stroke and how to live healthier lives in an attempt to prevent heart disease and stroke.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Web site has an incredible amount of information.
How smart the founders of this project were to choose the month of February to celebrate the day. After all, February is well-known for being the month of love.
That makes me think of love songs…..especially love songs sung by Clay Aiken.
