American Heart Month Double Dares Women to Beat Health Foes

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Women of the United States, we double dare you! Stub out those nasty cigarettes for good, and dramatically reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Who's laying down the gauntlet? With its Go Red for Women movement, the American Heart Association has challenged women across the country to reduce their risk of heart disease by taking action to reduce their risks., the nation's leading healthy-lifestyle Web site, has upped the ante by working with the American Heart Association and challenging women to kick butts, thus substantially reducing their risk for heart disease. RealAge kicked off this challenge in February, American Heart Month, and they will remain as a resource for women throughout the year.

Dr. Michael Roizen, RealAge's cofounder and author of YOU: Staying Young, among other best selling YOU books, is leading this health charge. Women are often painfully unaware that heart disease is their gender's number one killer, and that nicotine addiction is a major contributor. Smoking causes approximately 440,000 premature deaths each year in the United States -- 35% of which are from heart disease.

RealAge's new Stop Smoking Center provides smokers with the latest research and most effective strategies for kicking butts. Since no two smokers are alike, the Stop Smoking Center offers would-be quitters strategies tailored to an individual's smoking triggers and level of dependence.
