Health is a single most important thing in life, which is why it should always be our top priority to look after. Maintaining health can be done in various ways, such as controlling food intake, exercising regularly, adequate sleep, vitamins, and so on.
Unfortunately, many people don’t put enough care on their health. Often, they don’t even know they have a disease until it’s too late, which is when curable disease has eaten too much of your body that now it has become fatal. According to Research UK, almost half of people who get cancer are diagnosed late, which makes treatment less likely to succeed and reduces their chances of survival.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stroke strikes nearly 800,000 Americans each year and killing 140,000, which does not have to be that way.
