WSPA Channel 7 Reporter Christine Scarpelli and WSPA Channel 7 Photojournalist Ryan Goodman were at Main Street Junction on Main Street in downtown Union Friday morning interviewing local residents, officials, and businesspeople about the community's support of National Wear Red Day, the Paint the Town Red Project, and Heart Awareness Month.

The event focused on the number one killer in women, heart disease which is how one in three women die each year. The bad news is that there are myths out there that many women have bought into. Heart attack and stroke are the leading cause of death of women over the age of 35. "Having a healthy heart is part of living an overall healthy lifestyle".

This can create numerous problems, many of which are related to atherosclerosis, which is when plaque builds up on the walls of the arteries. If a blood clot forms, it can stop the blood flow.

She added that women also can make greater impact on the lives and health of their families.

He said if they would just take preventative measures, it could save their lives. That means first taking a close look at risk factors. But it's not recommended for women in their 60s or those at high risk for breast cancer.

"Fast food, fast pace, stress, smoking, cholesterol, diabetes, obesity", Kerr said. "That's totally fine!" she said. "Since then, mine and my family's heart health has become a priority, and I am honored to be helping raise awareness through Little Hats Big Hearts".

"There are important differences in women's hearts that are irrefutable and still poorly understood", says Dr. Karin Humphries, scientific director of the B.C. Centre for Improved Cardiovascular Health. "I think every firm around here probably let everybody wear their Eagles stuff today".
