Huffington Post: Think pink and red this October
Throughout October, many people wear pink as a tribute to the fight against breast cancer. While breast cancer is understandably considered a women’s disease, heart disease is, too.
In fact, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States, causing one of every three deaths each year, an average of nearly one woman per minute.
American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown, and her guest — Judith Salerno, M.D., M.S. and the chief executive officer of Susan G. Komen — discuss disease prevention for women in the latest Huffington Post column.
