From an early age, proper diet and exercise is taught to us, yet most Americans aren’t getting the recommended amount of exercise that they need each day. Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for mortality around the world, as it is linked to a number of health defects. In total, less than 5% of the adult population participate in 30 minutes of physical activity per day with only three out of ten adults exercising regularly. Diet and exercise can even decrease a patient’s risk for cardiovascular problems and some forms of cancer. Thankfully advanced specialists in the medical field have the training, experience, and care needed to help patients defeat disease.
>Br> Cardiac Care
There are nearly 735,000 Americans who suffer from a heart attack every year; that is about one death every 43 seconds. The three primary risk factors for heart disease are high blood pressure, high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, and smoking tobacco — about half of all Americans have at least one of these three factors present. A healthy diet when combined with exercise may be able to prevent the onset of heart disease; those at an increased risk are urged to contact a heart center near them to schedule a consolation.
>Br> Cancer Care
Starting no later than 50, both men and women alike are at an increased risk for developing certain forms of cancer like colorectal cancer, and thus should begin tests that can detect the early signs of cancer. Mammograms can find breast cancer at its most early stages, giving patients an advantage when it comes to fighting the cancer. Cancer specialists have diagnosed about 64% of cancer survivors over five years ago with almost half of cancer survivors currently living past the age of 70. Cancer is a horrible thing; thanks to advanced techniques used by cancer specialists however, we may yet see an end to cancer.
