AN EARLY DEATH CAN BE PREVENTED EASILY…  We all know that taking better care of ourselves can have some payback, but few realize just how much.

This study looked at 4 behaviors:  smoking, <3 fruits / veggies per day, <2 hours exercise per wk, heavier consumption of alcohol.  Keep in mind that these are paltry recommendations.  The bare minimum.  If you can’t follow these, just hang it up now and contact a pre-need burial service.  The results for those who did not meet any of the 4 criteria?  3.5 times the risk of dying.  These patients were essentially 12 years older physiologically.

So despite the mistaken notion that “grandpa lived to be 112 and smoke and drank Jack all day so what’s the point of taken better care of myself…” the vast majority of us are susceptible to what we do to our bodies.  Your choice.  Take care of yourself or play the mortality lotto.
