A Lifetime of Medical Checkups [infographic]

September 5, 2013 |  by  |  Health

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! [via]
