It takes a few years for unhealthy behaviours to catch up with you. That’s why its a good idea to be aware of what lies ahead and to make the changes now that will lead to good health down the track.

The state of your health lies partly in your genes. If your father and grandfather suffered from heart disease, you could have a similar problem. If your mother had diabetes, you could be in the running for it. Knowing who is in your family tree gives you important background information.


Every stage of life has its own pitfalls, but its never too late to make changes. Whatever your age, a healthy lifestyle will reward you.
