Looking through years of Health Check I realise the same conditions keep coming up and up.
It concerned me at first then I realised it’s because the common things which knock us off the perch before our time or which muck up the last thirty years of life are just that.
They are common and as my old teacher used to say, common things occur commonly.
Heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer. It’s hard to believe but 80% of these common conditions have a strong level of preventability about them.
Ok the genes we got from our parents are strong but if we know how our body works and what goes wrong when we are sick, small changes can make a big difference.
