Are You Wearing Red Today?

Today is National Wear Red Day, an initiative created by the American Heart Association to draw attention to the prevalence of heart disease, especially among women. In addition to Valentine's Day falling on the 14th, February is National Heart Month -- two more terrific reminders to take care of your heart. So now's the time to learn how to fight heart disease by eating healthy food, exercising, reducing stress -- and, of course, by wearing red!
