National Wear Red Day!

Posted on: February 1, 2008

Hey Everyone!

Today is National Wear Red Day! People across the globe are wearing red today to support the fight against heart disease among women. It’s a simple way to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke. National Wear Red Day has its own dress code and allows you to wear the red apparel of your choice. Go in your closet and get a red blouse, red headband, red purse, red broche, and red dress or wear that daring red lipstick! The options are endless.

Heart disease is the number one killer for both men and women in America. Heart disease can begin early, even in the teen years. Many risk factors for heart disease we can not change, such as our age, race, gender, or family history. But other risk factors are manageable such as our cholesterol level, cutting out drugs and alcohol and maintaining a healthy weight. Visit The Heart Truth (http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/hearttruth/index.htm) website for more information on heart disease.

Spreading the message and wearing red will help to increase awareness and support the fight for healthy living. It’s important to keep our bodies healthy inside and out. A good way to is to monitor what goes in our bodies. Girl Talk educates teenage girls about the dangers of underage drinking and the specific risks facing teenage girls. Be sure to check out the Girl Talk website for tips on living a healthy and active lifestyle.

That’s all for now,
