Women don't like to be wrong. (Trust me. I'm a woman, and I hate being wrong.) However, when it comes to holding the belief that breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women, the majority of women are wrong. The truth is, heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the United States. In fact, more women die of heart disease each year than die of all types of cancer combined.

Don't despair. There is good news. Heart disease may be the leading cause of death in women, but it is also the most preventable. One of the easiest ways to prevent heart disease is to monitor and control your cholesterol by making simple changes to your eating habits. General Mills has been advocating the importance of lowering your cholesterol for years, stating in their commercials that eating one bowl of Cheerios per day can help lower cholesterol levels.

With that said, one of my new blogger friends, Jeanette of AMoores, is sponsoring a great giveaway to help spread the word about this cause. Cheerios has partnered with WomenHeart in order to raise awareness for heart disease and to provide free cholesterol screening for women in need. So, pop over to Jeanette's blog and and enter for a chance to win a Circle of Helping Hearts Bracelet, a beautiful freshwater pearl bracelet with a heart charm from Charity Charms. Charity Charms will donate a portion of the proceeds from its charms to various charities. By wearing the charm bracelet you can show your dedication to raising awareness of women's heart health.

The deadline to enter is April 5, 2009. Spread the word about the giveaway and the cause!

Good luck!
