Take My Disease Risk Reduction Quiz
Take this quick quiz to see how you are doing in reducing your risk for disease:
Four Areas to Improve Your Health
Lets define these 4 areas more.
- Smoking is the single largest cause of cancer, stroke and heart disease. I commend CVS for recently eliminating tobacco from it’s shelves (a costly commitment).
- Eating well is a subjective answer. Answering yes implies the intent of eating well, but the definition would simply be a diet that includes good portions of daily fresh fruit, veggies and whole grains.
- The simple addition of self-reported exercise (does not matter what type or how long) decreases the likelihood of all disease and most importantly infections. In fact, over exercising is a source of oxidative stress and injury.
- Ideal weight is different for every person and depends on many factors including; sex, race and body frame. Perception of weight control is associated with an overall decreased risk of all disease.
- Disease is the CA– USE of illness
- Lifestyle is the CA– USE of disease
- BE AT CA– USE OF YOUR WELLNESS
