Today, there is a huge paradox. We have never been so aware of what is good for our health and what is bad for our health, yet in many ways, we as a population are as unhealthy as we have ever been. Obesity is skyrocketing, diabetes and heart disease are on the increase, and cancer is still one of the most prevalent diseases. It’s easy to become downhearted at all the negative headlines. But there is something we can control; our own lifestyles. Armed with a little knowledge, we can be in control of our diet, our stress levels, and how much physical activity we do, to avoid poor health outcomes.
