Jennie Garth is teaming up with the American Heart Association to help spread awareness about Go Red For Women — an initiative to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease.

In the video, Garth shares that her father died from cardiovascular disease and says,”80 percent of cardiac events in women may be prevented if we make the right choices. 80 percent! You may not know you’re at risk, but one woman dies every minute from this largely preventable disease.”

What’s the easiest way to treat your heart right? We’ll give you a clue: it also happens to be the best choice for the planet. Yep, going VEG is perhaps the greatest thing you can do for Mama Earth and your ol’ ticker.

In fact, Director of the Framingham Health Study, Dr. William Castelli, M.D., says “We’ve never had a heart attack in Framingham in 35 years in anyone who had a cholesterol under 150.”

Currently, the average cholesterol level in the U.S. for people who eat a Standard American Diet  is 210. However, the average vegetarian’s cholesterol level is only 161 and the average vegan’s cholesterol is 133.

So what are you waiting for? Join Jennie Garth and your favorite friends at Ecorazzi and drop that drumstick!
