February is American Heart Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States, and is a major cause of disability for both men and women. The most common heart disease in the United States is coronary heart disease, which often appears as a heart attack. On National Wear Red Day, Americans across the country wore red to increase awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of women (and men).
