This blog is for people who know they should do "healthy stuff," but aren't sure what, why, or how.

The CDC states that nearly half of US adults have a chronic health condition, and that 7 of the top 10 causes of death are chronic diseases [1]. The Milken Institute projects that with better wellness choices regarding nutrition, exercise, and tobacco, the US can avoid 40 million cases of chronic disease in 2023 [2].

This blog is based on an email series I wrote for my public health colleagues. It talks about how your choices reduce your risk of chronic disease. If you find it useful, please subscribe and share!

Thanks,

Reggie
