It is the sound of your heart accelerating its beat as your Valentine walks your way.
Valentine’s Day is Friday, causing more people to notice their heart’s activity.
The American Heart Association’s “Go Red” campaign also wants to raise awareness this month for the health of women’s hearts.
It is the cause of death for one in three women; one death every minute in the United States. It causes more fatalities than all forms of cancer combined, says the American Heart Association.
Factors include: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, family history, obesity, and age.
Silent heart attacks can be deadly for American women, and the warning signs are not the same as those in men.
Even though statistics show that no woman is safe from the disease, there are things they can do to prevent themselves from becoming another number.
