Heart disease is the number one cause of death for women. According to the National, Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute(NHLBI), “coronary heart disease, often simply called heart disease, is a disorder of the blood vessels of the heart that can lead to heart attack. Heart disease is just one of several cardiovascular diseases.”
Risk factors are conditions or habits that make a person more likely to develop a disease. Diabetes, smoking, overweight/obesity, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, and high cholesterol are important risk factors for heart disease. But, did you know you can lower your risk of heart disease by eating a well-balanced diet, exercising, not smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight?
Design Essentials® has partnered with The Heart Truth® to raise awareness among women about the dangers of heart disease. Through our national campaign, Design Essentials® Goes Red for The Heart Truth® (official press release) , we will empower consumers with information to live heart healthy through heart-inspired initiatives, events, and education.
