Lincolnwood, IL (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. This February, Publications International, Ltd. (PIL), creator of the award-winning iCookbook TM app, joins the American Heart Association (AHA) in heart disease prevention with the new Go Red 2013 Recipes for the Heart digital magazine app.
Go Red 2013 Recipes for the Heart contains more than 50 recipes for main dishes, soups, salads, side dishes, snacks, and more designed to inspire all women to make daily food choices with their heart in mind. Offering nutritional analysis with diabetic exchanges, alongside beautiful full color photography, Go Red 2013 Recipes for the Heart also provides information on the Go Red For Women movement, AHA’s healthy lifestyle recommendations, and warning signs for heart attack and stroke.
“An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease, yet only one in five women believe heart disease is her greatest health threat,” says Dr. Jennifer Mieres, Professor of Cardiology and Senior Vice President of Community and Public Health at North Shore – LIJ Health System. “That’s why it’s so important to understand your personal risk factors and often-overlooked common symptoms, and to share that information with the women you love.”
“I was shocked to learn that heart disease is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined,” said Go Red For Women supporter Allison Janney. “My mother’s quadruple bypass surgery was an eye-opening experience. I’m now making heart healthy changes to reduce my own risk, and have joined with Go Red For Women to educate other women about what they can do. Together, women have the power to save our own lives.”
Additional features of the Go Red 2013 Recipes for the Heart app include:
- Tales From the Heart: Real-life stories and videos from women who have taken control of their heart health.
- Know Your Numbers and Your Risk: Learn about the health factors that affect your risk for heart disease and stroke and the importance of early heart-health screening.
- Ask the Expert: Professional advice from Dr. Vyshali Rao, Go Red For Women spokesperson.
- Preparation Tips: “How-to” videos covering topics such as preparing fresh herbs, blanching tomatoes, and more.
- Get Involved: Learn how you can get involved with the American Heart Association to help fight heart disease.
