Manage Your Health, Manage Your worth.

In the US, about 60% of bankruptcy is related to some type of health issues – expensive medical care, long-term care, and medication.  More than $80,000,000,000 (that’s $80 billions) spend on medical cost due to inactivity (so start moving today!) and 75% of this amount (which is $61.5 billions) is spent on medical care on treating preventable condition (See CDC facts below). Think of what we can do with that money (better schools, better roads, housing … etc).

Most of these issues are preventable. Here are the most leading causes of preventable health issues:

Based on the CDC, the top six health threats in the US: 

1. Heart disease

2. Cancer (lung, skin, prostate, and colon)

3. Automobile accidents

4. Chronic lower respiratory tract diseases

5. Stroke

6. Type II Diabetes

Change your lifestyle, change your health outcome.  Seven out of 10 causes of death can be reduced by positive change in exercise, diet, smoking and alcohol use.

Common Preventable Measures: don’t smoke, eat healthy diet, limit alcohol consumption, exercise regularly, healthy weight, manage stress, manage chronic conditions (blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes), healthy hygiene (washing hands and annual physical exam).

Most of these preventable measures are inexpensive activity to do so you can save $$$ down stream.
