Women's Health: Tips to Help Women Age Healthfully #FoodFri
Women and men often experience disease or warning signs of disease differently. For example, women are at higher risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis and lose muscle mass at a younger age than men. Signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke also vary.
Join #FoodFri on Friday, July 29, 2016, with @MomsRising and @CSPI, to discuss how women can identify specific signals and prevent or reduce risk for the diseases and chronic problems that have the greatest impact on women’s health.
This chat will cover topics relevant to women of all ages and will provide plenty of tips and suggestions on how we can support health as we age. Whether you work as a health professional, or are joining for yourself or the important women in your life, there will be plenty of useful information!

Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.
Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.
