More like barbecue bypass surgery. As a dietitian, I’m urging the women of Washington to raise awareness about the No. 1 killer of women—heart disease—by avoiding Meat Week.

February is American Heart Month, a month to spread the word that heart disease kills one in every four women. Eating red meat increases the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease, according to a recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health, and when those meats are processed—pastrami, bacon, hot dogs, sausage—the risk nearly doubles.

Ladies, let’s skip the “High on the Hog Eating Challenge,” this week and say no to red meat year-round. Fight heart disease with a healthful diet of fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains.
