HEALTHY LIVING TO STAY ALIVE
Nutrients also help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.
Good nutrition can lower your risk of developing a range of
chronic diseases. For example, eating more fruit and vegetables can
help lower blood pressure and may lower your risk of certain types of
cancer (such as colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer). Eating
less saturated fat may also lower your risk of heart disease.
Healthy eating can also help people that already have some types of
disease or illness such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood
pressure. And, of course, improving your eating habits will contribute
to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
Try to achieve a balance with the foods you eat and include lots of variety and remember, all things in moderation.
