Dallas Nutrition Advisor discusses preventable threats to survival. We all are concerned about living longer, healthier lives.Â Death is inevitable, but we can take steps to stave it off as long as possible.
There are certain risk factors that are under each individual’s control.Â Many of these risk categories are nutritionally related.
The top ten risk factors in the United States are:
- High Blood Pressure
- Physical Inactivity
- Excess Weight
- High Blood Sugar
- High Salt Intake
- High LDL Cholesterol
- Low Intake of Omega-3 Fats
- High Dietary Trans Fats
