Today is National “Wear Red” Day to spread awareness about the #1 killer of women – heart disease.
This is especially beneficial to those with pre-existing conditions of hypertension and other heart problems. Numerous studies have found that drinking the equivalent of four cups of coffee does, in fact, raise blood pressure. Although the increase is fairly modest, it is definitely large enough to raise the risk to those more susceptible to heart attack and stroke.
So when you are honoring the day by wearing something red, do yourself a favor – drink some too!
