The facts are sobering. Heart disease kills more women than any other disease. 450,000 women die each year, that’s about one each minute. One in three women have some form of cardiovascular disease. In Illinois, more than 55 percent of women are overweight and obese. But, 80 percent of cardiac events in women could be prevented with diet, exercise and the cessation of smoking. Act now to live a healthier life. One option is to visit GoRedForWomen.org and participate in Go Red BetterU, a free 12-week online nutrition and fitness program that includes step-by-step guidance and an online journal.
