Did you know that heart disease doesn't discriminate?
This is one case where we wish women weren't equally represented. Contrary to popular belief, heart disease is not just a male disease. In fact, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, heart disease annually claims the lives of more women than men. So take small steps toward better heart health. Have your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels checked regularly. Engage in physical activity like walking. "Color" your diet (think an orange for breakfast, red apples for lunch, and some vivid greens for dinner). Take one step. It's never too late.
