Charles Warner | The Union Times The storefront window of Economy Office Supply on Main Street in downtown Union is one of the many storefronts of businesses and other organizations in the downtown area decorated in honor of National Wear Red Day (Friday, Feb. 2) and Heart Awareness Month (February). Women should know their cholesterol, blood pressure and sugar levels.

The campaign works to bring awareness of heart disease and congenital heart defects. Go Red also wants action to save more lives and was created to empower women to take charge of their heart health. Go Red For Women encourages women to protect their heart health, be informed, and lead healthy lives. The differences - which include artery size, blood pressure, resting heart rate and differences in the way plaque builds up in the blood vessels - make it more hard to properly diagnose heart problems in women, it concludes. For younger women, the combination of birth control pills and smoking can increase your risk by 20 percent. Tell your server that you're wearing red to celebrate Wear Red Day, a release stated.


Myth 3: I am not having a heart attack because I don't have any symptoms More than 60 percent of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease did not have previous symptoms.

Understanding your family health history, knowing your numbers and making simple lifestyle changes are keys to preventing heart disease and stroke. "That's an average of one death every forty seconds", said Jessica DiMeo, the Senior Regional Director of Communications at the American Heart Association. It just so happens that seemingly innocuous factors like your love life, how you spent your childhood, and even the age at which you got your first period can affect your risk of heart disease. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases.
