A lifetime of medical checkups

A lifetime of medical checkups -infographic

According to today’s infographic, the most common fatal illnesses are cancer and cardiovascular disease. While many of these illnesses have genetic links, they can also be prevented with pro-active preventative practices such as: yearly checkups, a healthy balanced diet, and regular exercise.

Unfortunately, my family is cursed with high blood pressure and diabetes. Because of this, I have decided to be preventative and become a health freak. Not really, but I feel like it most of the time. I became a vegetarian, run a minimum of three miles a day, and stay away from over-processed foods. If your uninsured like me, implementing small lifestyle changes like mine can make a huge difference 5-10 years down the road.  For those who are insured, getting yearly checkups are a luxury you must take advantage of! Thankfully, today’s infographic informs us on what we should be getting checked, starting in your twenties. Consult today’s infographic and be preventative! Thank you for the excellent infographic.
