Here are some basic pointers to reduce the risk of developing illness by following a healthy lifestyle..
Limit your Alcohol intake
Evidence suggests that alcohol in small quantities can be beneficial to health. However, exceding the internationally accepted safe limits, on a regular basis, it can have very serious harmful effect on your health. An accepted safe limit is 28 units a week for men and 21 units for women, a unit being approximately a glass of wine, half a pint of beer or a single measure of spirit, spread throughout the week and not consumed all at once.
Over 100,000 people die each year in the UK from smoking-related diseases.
Every cigarette you smoke can shorten your life by an average of five and a half minutes.
