Wear Red Day – level 1
The first Friday of February is a special day in the US. It is Wear Red Day.
People wear red clothes. This makes people think about heart disease. It is a big problem for US women. One in three women dies from heart disease every year. Younger and younger women have heart disease. Experts worry about the situation.
Most people can prevent the disease. It is important to eat well and exercise. A good diet means you eat enough grains, fruit, and vegetables. It is better to drink water than drinks with sugar. Other important things are to stop smoking and relax.
Difficult words: prevent (to stop something from happening), diet (what a person eats), grains (corn, rice, oats, and similar foods).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
