The Importance of Awareness
Regardless of your age or health status, it is always the right time to begin leading a healthy lifestyle. Also, figuring out your personal risk profile with your doctor. For example, there are general categories of health risks that are important to be aware of, such as heart disease or smoking risks.
There are also age relevant health issues to be aware of, along with gender-specific issues such as reproductive health or breast cancer screenings.
For example, heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, with stroke as the third leading killer. These two diseases are strongly correlated to lifestyle issues that can be managed if addressed properly. The good news is that every day is a new opportunity to make healthy changes in your life and you don’t have to do it alone!
