Go to a cemetery, look around you, 3-4 in 10 of these tombstones didn’t have to be there so early.
How do we change this?

  1. Quit smoking, don’t over-consume alcohol.
  2. Eat healthier, exercise more, lose some weight.
  3. Wear seat-belts, drive safely, don’t be reckless.
  4. See your doctor and get checkups, most cancers are treated with early detection (the 10 year survival rates for melanoma is 95% when found in the first stage and only 10% when diagnosed in the last stage)
