It kills more American women annually than all forms of cancer combined-- one woman every minute. Ninety percent of women have at least one factor that puts them at risk. It doesn’t discriminate based on age. Yet heart disease is still often misunderstood as a disease that is more prevalent in men.
That’s why 10 years ago the The American Heart Association (AHA) established “National Wear Red Day” to promote awareness of women’s heart disease, symptoms, risk factors, and how to prevent the number-one killer of women in the United States. AHA research has shown that 90 percent of American women have at least one factor that puts them at higher risk for heart disease, but only 1 in 5 are aware that it is their biggest cause of death.
