A healthier lifestyle is key to lowering your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Keeping your weight in check and exercising significantly reduces your chance of cancer and heart disease, and so does cutting down on your tobacco and alcohol intake.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. It can cause heart attacks and death, along with many other symptoms.Women are 50% more likely to die from a heart attack.
Diabetes is a very serious disease where the body either creates too much sugar or does not turn sugar into energy. Eating healthily when you are young can help prevent diabetes and imprint good habits.

So what are you going to do about it? Here are some ways you can lower your risk of getting these diseases.

PHYSICAL EXERCISE: Exercising is one way. The stronger your heart, the lower your risk is for getting these diseases.
