On average, people who smoke will reduce their life expectancy by approximately 14 years. Respiratory diseases, lung cancer, and other smoking-related health problems are responsible for 440,000 deaths each year in the United States.
Smoking-related sickness and disease is not an easy battle to fight or win. That’s why smokers are asked to stop smoking today, make efforts to maintain a healthy weight, eat more vegetable and fruits, exercise each week and be screened for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer on a regular basis.
Remember, you’re only given one body to live in. Do all you can to take care of it and enhance the quality of your life. In addition to kicking the habit, make sure you’re eating plenty of vegetables, increase your heart rate for 30 minutes a day, and participate in weekly chiropractic adjustments.
