On Valentine's Day, The Most Important Heart
By WVFC on February 09, 2010
In this week of hearts and flowers, it’s important not to overlook the most important heart of all--your own.
This week the Valentines’ Day barrage is tough to miss: the jewelry ads, 1-800-LOVE-ROSES, boxes of ever-more expensive chocolate guaranteed to make our loved ones feel special. You may have even shunted aside the high-profile Go Red campaign, whose smiling celebrities bring to mind all that pink-ribbons-for-your-breasts stuff last spring. But beyond the hype, the Go Red campaign--a brainchild of the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association--is onto something essential. Your Valentine's Day present to yourself could be to take some basic steps to protect yourself against the number one killer of women in this country.
