Migraine and Our Hearts - Go Red on Friday
When we think about our Migraines and headaches, we don't often think about our hearts, but we should. Every day, women are dying from heart disease at a rate of nearly one per minute.
When we think of diseases that kill women, most people think of breast cancer as being at the top of the lists. But heart disease kills nearly five times as many women as breast cancer.
Those of us with Migraine need to pay special attention to the risks of heart disease since having Migraine can be an added risk. Here are a couple of articles that everyone should read:
- Migraine with Aura Linked To Cardiovascular Disease in Women
- More Research Links Migraine With Aura and Stroke in Women
Friday, February 4, is National Wear Red Day. I hope you'll please take some time to read the links above, wear red, and give some though to how you can reduce your risk of heart disease.
