The NIH urges women to protect their heart health
Date:2/1/2012

As part of American Heart Month, on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's (NHLBI's) The Heart Truth campaign, with the support of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), will showcase its signature event, the Red Dress Collection 2012 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.

Data also show that women who are aware that heart disease is their number one killer were 35 percent more likely to be physically active and 47 percent more likely to report losing excess weight than women who were unaware.

A new paper published in the Jan. 26 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine adds to the substantial body of evidence that people can reduce their chances of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) through lifelong prevention and management of risk factors. In one of the largest-ever analyses of lifetime risks for CVD, NHLBI-supported researchers found that middle-aged adults who have one or more elevated tradit
