Did you know today is Blog Your Heart Out Day? This is to raise awareness of heart disease in women. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women. It seems that as women, we all focus on breast cancer, but heart disease is the truly underestimated disease – and one that we have direct control over.
Did you know:
- Heart disease kills 1 woman every single minute?
- 90% of all women have at least 1 risk factor for heart disease
- 80% of cardiac events in women may be prevented by making the right choices involving diet, exercise and not smoking. 80%!!
Spread the word. Grab another woman and get out for a walk, some exercise, a healthy shopping trip, or even just to sit down and talk about heart disease.
You all know I love to move. What are you doing for your heart today?
