  • Critical Illness Policies Can Help Pay for Preventive Care

    Make your health a matter of choice, not chance! Taking care of your body and mind means a longer life and a better quality of life. Your lifestyle choices do have an impact on your health.

    The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2004 more than 180,000 cancer deaths were caused by tobacco use. Scientific evidence suggests that about one-third of the cancer deaths in 2004 were related to nutrition, physical activity, obesity and other lifestyle factors and thus could have been prevented.

    The American Heart Association reports that over 70 million Americans have one or more types of cardiovascular disease! As with cancer, many of the risk factors are lifestyle choices such as physical inactivity, tobacco use, obesity and in many cases failure to treat controllable conditions like high cholesterol and high blood pressure with medications readily available from your family doctor.
