Seize the Day

You have probably seen commercial or print ads for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement - last month I briefly talked about the National Wear Red Day (post). This important movement runs until March 1, 2008, and their goal is to inspire and motivate women to seize that moment or opportunity to think about their heart and their health.

In 2004 (most recent stats) 871,500 people died in the USA of cardiovascular disease, 461,200 were women. That is so scary. Heart Disease is the number 1 killer of Americans.

I recommend that you visit the Go Red For Women website as it has so much wonderful information: a free 12-week physical activity program, submit your question to The Go Red For Women Expert Panel, great tips on the prevention of heart disease and of course my favourite - the Heart-Healthy recipes - the one that caught my eye on their site is the Berry Topped Pudding Pie - yummy!
