How Not to Die and Live More Healthily

In my work as a PTA, I am confronted daily with consequences of unhealthy diets and over reliance on medications for symptoms caused by life style choices. I am not judging people who make these choice for the reason that we have all been influenced by the society we grew up in where corporations push unhealthy choices because they make big profits from them and a prescription drug industry that minimizes side effects (really an effect just unwanted) and maximize benefits in order to make us think that we can solve our health problems just by taking a pill. But,  making some moderate adjustments to our diet and adding a little exercise can make some significant changes in our health with almost no side effects. Culture is a powerful thing. It can literally kill you. But, in the end we can make choices, maybe small steps at first, to avoid dying or living with illness that can be avoided.
