American Heart Association Wants Women To “Go Red” On Friday

Go Red for Women Day: Heart disease awareness

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular diseases - which include stroke - claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds.

Yet women are less likely than men to believe they're at risk, and their heart disease symptoms are more likely to go misdiagnosed, resulting in the disease being discovered much later, the heart association says.

"[The recipes are] very simple and healthy, and that's what we want to keep people living longer", said Pam Johnson, the manager and a chef at Elijah's Promise. People are encouraged to reduce their risk of heart disease by eating a heart-healthy diet, maintaining an active lifestyle, not smoking or using tobacco products, maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough sleep, managing stress and visiting their health care providers for regular screenings.

Survivor Annie Dragoo said that can be the most hard part. "We all know you are what you eat, but it's also important that you recognize that you are what you think".

"If we can just educate and promote awareness that could maybe take us out of that number one spot", Cucurullo said.
