New Mexico women need to know the risk of heart disease

SGMC observes Heart Health Month

It's organized every year by the American Heart Association and the "Go Red For Women" Movement.

The American Heart Association has invited several national and local iconic landmarks to turn their facades red on Friday, Feb. 2, in support of the American Heart Association's National Wear Red Day to elevate awareness of heart disease.

Nearly a decade of years ago, the American Heart Association presented "Go Red for Women", a movement providing information to women about cardiovascular disease.

Just a reminder that Friday, Feb 2, is National Wear Red Day! For example, 43.4 percent of non-Hispanic white women and 43.1 percent of Hispanic males have elevated cholesterol levels of 200 or higher; 46.3 percent of non-Hispanic black women and 45 percent of non-Hispanic black men have high blood pressure.

Understanding your family health history, knowing your numbers and making simple lifestyle changes are keys to preventing heart disease and stroke. Go Red For Women challenges women to know their personal risk of heart disease, and make sure they do everything they can do reduce the risks.

The broadcaster reported that a man had found them after buying the cabinets and drilling through the locks. The ABC didn't reveal how it received the documents.

Myth 1: Heart disease doesn't affect fit women Even if you exercise and eat a healthy diet, you are still at risk for heart disease.

More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined.

Go Red For Women's symbol is a red dress to "create synergy among all organizations committed to fighting this cause", according to the campaign's website, though one need not wear a dress to support the cause. Be aware of your blood pressure and cholesterol. Walk through a model of the heart and learn all about how your heart beats and why taking care of it is so important.

· Are a woman over the age of 50. "So anything we can do to promote awareness for others that are struggling with a heart condition or aren't as lucky or as healthy as ours". "The truth is, anything you do will help. Maybe your diet's not ideal, but try oatmeal some mornings for breakfast and try sprinkling some blueberries on top". A fashion show and door prizes will follow, and the event includes free heart-related screenings on site. Go Red For Women is nationally sponsored by Macy's and CVS Health; and locally by New York City Goes Red Sponsors, Northwell Health and the Elizabeth Elting Foundation.
