How Lifestyle Changes Are Everything!

You may not be able to change your family history, but you can change your lifestyle in order to save your life. Eat less meat and sodium-rich foods; exercise five days a week, ditch soda and sugary drinks and drink more water; don’t smoke; limit your alcohol consumption; and lose weight.
