Post a 150- to 300-word response to the following discussion question by clicking on Reply: According to pp. 354–357 (Ch. 12) of the textbook, what are some of the risk factors that can be controlled to prevent serious illness? According to pages 354-357 some of the risk factors that can be controlled to prevent serious illness are do not smoke, watch what you eat, exercise, manage stress and control blood pressure. If you smoke you have a significant higher chance of many illnesses including heart disease and cardiovascular disease. If you stop smoking your chances decline a great deal for heart disease and stroke. I personally have allergies to smoke so when people are at my house I ask them to smoke outside and not to smoke in my car. I know my children both have asthma and around smoke it gets worse. I think if you really watch what you put into your body that contributes to many things you can control like; saturated fat, cholesterol, maintain weight, control diabetes and control blood pressure. If you know what causes these things to be out of whack than you can limit the negative that they may cause your body and health. I know I have been overweight for years. I am trying to get myself to a healthy weight and I have the determination but it is a long process. Stress is a big part of people's lives that has an impact on their health. If you can try to find a way to control your stress it will put less strain on your body and you may not develop some of these illnesses. Stress is a huge thing I really need to work on. Right now I have vertigo and they think it is stress induced. I am trying my hardest to keep myself on top of things and not stress myself out.
