Some people consider their health to be their doctor’s responsibility. This is one way to look at things, but some old sayings are still repeated because they contain a lot of truth. One such saying is that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
What we are suggesting is that positive lifestyle choices have everything to do with your health. If you do the right things throughout your life, you are much more likely to remain healthy once you reach middle age and on into your golden years.
On the other hand, if you are a smoker, do not consider the implications of what you put into your body, and never exercise, you are inviting health problems.
The biggest killers in the United States are chronic diseases, including stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. In many instances chronic diseases are preventable through a healthy diet, exercise, controlling your weight, and not smoking.
In addition to the personal benefits of a health-conscious lifestyle, keeping the doctor away can also save you a great deal of money. Many people are very serious about budgeting for the future but never consider the concept of addition by subtraction. If those bills never come, you do not to have to worry about how to pay them.
